82 projects funding granted by the FNRS to ULiège researchers!


Every year, the Belgian National Fund for Scientific Research (F.R.S.-FNRS) grants subsidies to researchers from the universities of the Fédération Wallonie Bruxelles so that they can devote themselves to their scientific research. Among these subsidies, fundings are dedicated to research projects. This year, 82 projects defended by ULiège researchers received support.

The FRS-FNRS (Fonds National de la Recherche Scientifique) is a public utility foundation whose aim is to promote scientific research in the Wallonia-Brussels Federation by granting subsidies to researchers to enable them to devote themselves to scientific research, and to institutions to enable them to equip or operate research units. For more than 90 years, the FNRS has been contributing to the development of fundamental research in the Wallonia-Brussels Federation through its policy of encouraging scientific excellence and supporting researchers at the various stages of their careers.

Research credits (CDR)

A funding instrument for an individual researcher (or his or her team) to provide funding for basic and exploratory research or to encourage the emergence of new research themes and researchers.

Incentive Grant for Scientific Research

A funding instrument to support young permanent researchers wishing to develop a scientific unit within their academic institution in a field of the future. The research programme will be distinguished by its originality and novelty as well as by the scientific autonomy it implies with regard to the work of the laboratory in which the candidate is working. In the long term, it should enable the researcher to become independent in a "flagship" laboratory.
