The FNRS builds links with Germany (DFG) and Flanders (FWO) through the Weave initiative.
From 2022 onwards, new opportunities for cooperation with the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (Germany) and the FWO (Research Foundation Flanders) will be offered to French-speaking Belgian researchers within the European initiative Weave "Research Funding Without Borders". This initiative, of which the FNRS is a founding member, brings together several European research funding agencies that have decided to open their project funding instruments to each other.
Researchers from the Wallonia-Brussels Federation, who could already apply to the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR) and the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), will therefore be able to apply to the FWO and the DFG with a consortium of up to three Weave partners from 2022. Similarly, it will be possible to form bi- or trilateral proposals with DFG, FNR, FWO and SNSF in the next F.R.S.-FNRS PDR call in 2022.
