Ukraine: Suspension of the 2-month deadline to introduce "Bourse de séjour scientifique" applications

Print

In the framework of the research activities funded by the FNRS or one of its associated Funds, the "Bourse de séjour scientifique - BSS" instrument makes it possible to invite foreign researchers an FWB academic institution or to researchers from FWB academic institutions to complete a scientific stay abroad. These grants are for a period of one to three months (renewable twice) and cover the living expenses of both FWB researchers and visiting researchers at a rate of €1,300 per month.

In the current context of the war in Ukraine, the usual deadline of 2 months before the starting date of the grant for the submission of files will be suspended.

This measure mainly concerns researchers who are Ukrainian nationals and their family members whose main residence was in Ukraine before 24 February 2022.[1]
