Belgium (F.R.S.-FNRS) – Fédération Wallonie – Bruxelles critères d’éligibilité
Deadline for submission of pre-proposals (centralized submission): 30 November 2021, 15:00 CET.
Deadline for e-space submission (F.R.S.-FNRS obligation): 7 December 2021, 14:00 CET
The maximum amount of requested funding per project is 300.000 EUR for a total period of three years. If the project involves the recruitment of a PhD student, the project duration of the F.R.S.-FNRS sub-project could be up to four years.
All eligibility rules and criteria can be found in the PINT-MULTI regulations. This call is co-funded (See article III.6). Please note that personnel costs (Article III.6) have an annual average cap of 80,000 EUR for this call.
It is not possible to combine F.R.S-FNRS budget with federal budget (BELSPO funding) within the same consortium. In other words, regional and federal budget cannot be concentrated within one and the same project consortium, also when it implies different researchers and institutions.
Consortia with both F.R.S.-FNRS and BELSPO funding will thus be declared ineligible. Consequently, it is strongly advised to contact the funding contact points in order not to jeopardize the consortium eligibility.
Forms to be submitted
Applicants to F.R.S.-FNRS funding must provide basic administrative data by submitting an administrative application on e-space within 5 working days after the general deadline of the Biodiversa+ call to be eligible. Please select the “PINT-MULTI” funding instrument when creating the administrative application. Proposals invited to the second stage will be able to complete the pre-proposal form and provide information for the full proposal upon validation by the F.R.S.-FNRS.
“Overhead” is not an eligible cost. If the project is selected for funding, these costs will be subject to a separate agreement between the institution of the beneficiary and the F.R.S.-FNRS.
