Scientific Prizes

For many years now, the F.R.S.-FNRS has worked in close collaboration with several individuals and organisations who want to encourage research in all scientific disciplines. There are two ways they do this. There are the scientific Prizes which reward a researcher or research team for their particularly important work in a specific field. And there are the Grants which fund the work of researchers for a specific period.

The F.R.S.-FNRS also awards five researchers every five years with the FNRS Quinquennial Prizes (Prize for Excellence). These five prestigious Prizes are crowning achievements and serve to confirm the worldwide recognition of careers of Wallonia-Brussels Federation researchers from all scientific disciplines.

Thanks to the donations given by businesses, private foundations and individuals, the FNRS presents a variety of sponsored awards every year to researchers for their excellent work. In 2018, 18 Prizes, representing a funding total of €2,448,050, were awarded to not only Belgian researchers, but international researchers as well
