The “WELBIO Investigator Programmes” Call 2023 is open !

The FRFS-FNRS and the WEL Research Institute announce the opening of the “WELBIO Investigator Programmes” call, funded by the Walloon region, for strategic research of excellence in life sciences, with a view to translate discoveries into industrial applications in all fields of medical, pharmaceutical and veterinary biotechnology.

This call is open to researchers from the universities of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation who are either established (Advanced grants, max. €350,000/year) or at the beginning of their career (Starting grants, max. €200,000/year).


Calendar:

  • Communication of the funding decision: End of April 2024
  • Start of the programmes: June 1, 2024

Context of the call:

The WELBIO (Walloon Excellence in Life Sciences and Biotechnology) funding instrument corresponds to a strategic axis of the FRFS and a department of the WEL Research Institute. Through this instrument, Wallonia grants significant resources over several years to the WELBIO Investigators within the WEL Research Institute to develop ambitious research programmes that will lead to major scientific breakthroughs. These programmes represent a pillar of the Investigators’ laboratories and are flexible so the research scope can be adapted over time as needed. The Investigators within the WEL Research Institute must demonstrate a combination of scientific excellence, an awareness of unmet medical and technological needs in their field, and a willingness to seek application opportunities for their discoveries.
