Postdoctoral fellowships to non-EU researchers (Federal Science Policy Office)
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 does implement a for highly qualified researchers (i.e. postdoctoral level or equivalent experience) from specific regions, granting them an oppotunity to work during 6 to 12 months in a Belgian research team.
From 2006 on, the targeted countries are reconsidered:
- Eastern Europe (non-EU members), Caucasia and Central Asia (New Independent States of the Former Soviet Union);
- the non-European Mediterranean Region: Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Tunesia, Turkey;
- Central Africa: Burundi, Congo, Rwanda;
- South America (without preference).
The potential Belgian host units are those which are involved in the research programmes and actions of the Federal Science Policy Office (cf. FEDRA).
Applications are sent to the Federal Science Policy Office by the Belgian project leaders. The selection takes place once a year.
