Credits and Projects

Credits and Projects

The F.R.S.-FNRS has put in place a range of tools to provide scientific researchers who have a project of excellence with scientific and technical staff, equipment and means of operation.

Research credit – CDR

Funding instrument for an individual researcher (or his/her team) to ensure the funding of fundamental research, but also that of exploratory research or else to promote the emergence of new research themes and researchers.

In the context of a CDR, the eligible costs are of 3 types: operations, operational support and equipment.

The CDR has a duration of 2 years (with the possibility of extending the expenses over 3 years) and makes it possible to solicit funding of between €5,000 and €30,000 maximum per year.

Research project - PDR

Funding instrument for mono- or pluri-university research programmes, borne by a principal promoter.

The pluri-university PDR provides for the participation of one co-promoter per institution other than that of the principal promoter.

In the context of a PDR, the eligible costs are of 4 types: staff, operations, operational support and equipment.

The PDR has a duration of 2 years or of 4 years and makes it possible to solicit funding of between:

  • €30,000 and €80,000 (annual average) for a mono-university PDR,
  • €30,000 and €115,000 (annual average) for a pluri-university PDR.

Equipment - EQP

Funding instrument for mono- or pluri-university research programmes borne by a principal promoter for the purchase of equipment or an experimental system.  

The mono- or pluri-university EQP provides for the participation of co-promoters.

The EQP has a duration of two years and makes it possible to solicit funding with a cost including VAT of over € 30,000 and no greater than € 200,000.

Large equipment - GEQ

Funding instrument for mono- or pluri-university research programmes borne by a principal promoter for the purchase of equipment or an experimental system. 

The GEQ has a duration of two years and makes it possible to solicit funding of over € 200,000 and no greater than € 500,000.

Incentive grant for scientific research - MIS

Funding instrument to support young permanent researchers who wish to develop a scientific unit within their university institution in a growth field.

The research programme must be original and novel and suppose scientific autonomy with regard to the work of the laboratory within which the candidate is working.  Eventually, it should allow the researcher to achieve independence in a “flagship” laboratory.

Under the MIS:

  • the eligible costs are of 3 types: operations, equipment and staff;
  • the categories of personnel that can be solicited are: PhD student, postdoctoral scientist, short-term postdoctoral researcher and technician.

The MIS is granted for a maximum duration of three years (2 years + possible extension of 1 year) and makes it possible to solicit funding of an annual average of maximum € 150,000.

Interuniversity Institute for Nuclear Sciences - IISN

Regularly renewed, long-term financing of successive recurrent projects lasting up to 4 years, in particle physics, astro-particle physics and fundamental theoretical research.

Under funding from the IISN:

  • the eligible costs are of 3 types: operations, equipment and staff;
  • the categories of personnel that can be solicited are: PhD student or non-doctoral student, postdoctoral scientist, short-term postdoctoral researcher and technician.

International projects - PINT

The considerable added value of collaborative research is expressed by more visible scientific publications, greater scientific impact and the integration of more ambitious projects. This is why the F.R.S.-FNRS wishes to offer a favourable framework for the development of international research. The partnerships developed by our researchers also serve as a launch pad for the preparation of major projects at European and international level. 

 

Bilateral research projects – PINT-BILAT-P

The PINT-Bilat-P allow the financing of complete projects (personnel, equipment, operation, mobility) on the basis of a bilateral project between a researcher of the WBF and that of a partner agency of the FNRS.

In 2016, the F.R.S.-FNRS launched its first call for bilateral research projects with the Fonds de Recherche du Québec. These calls are part of a desire to develop strategic partnerships.

All eligibility conditions can be found in the rules and regulations: PINT-BILAT-P (only in FR).

 

Multilateral research projects – PINT-MULTI

The PINT-Multi allow the financing of complete projects (personnel, equipment, operation, mobility) on the basis of a multilateral project between a WBF researcher and those of other partner agencies of the networks.

Since 2011, the F.R.S.-FNRS has been participating actively in international calls in all fields. The vast majority of these calls come from European networks in close collaboration with the European Commission and focus on strategic themes or major societal challenges.  

All eligibility conditions can be found in the rules and regulations: PINT-MULTI (only in FR)
