Call for proposal
The stimulation of international mobility and the attraction of researchers from abroad is one of the priorities of the European Research Area.
In this context and intending to stimulate the S&T cooperation, the Federal Science Policy Office (BELSPO), together with the Marie Curie Actions, does implement a fellowship scheme for highly qualified non EU researchers (i.e. postdoctoral level or equivalent experience), granting them an opportunity to work during 6 to 18 months in a Belgian research team.
The target countries are those countries with which Belgian Reseach Institutions wish to strengthen cooperation and for which not sufficient alternatives are available.
However, are not considered: EU Member States and countries associated to the 7th Framework Programme nor the USA, Canada, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
The potential Belgian host units are those which are involved in the research programmes and actions of BELSPO (cf. FEDRA) or belong to a federal scientific institution.
Further eligibility and selection criteria are described in the following Information note
The deadline for application is Monday 28 February 2011 at 17:00 hour.
The appropriate application document should be sent by the Belgian project leader to BELSPO, avenue Louise 231 Louizalaan B-1050 Brussels.
Only complete and duely signed applications received before the deadline will be taken into consideration.
