FWO opens call for cooperation projects with South Korea

The FWO is strongly committed to international cooperation as a lever for scientific excellence. In this context, the FWO and the National Research Foundation (NRF) will support two-year cooperation projects with South Korea. These cooperation projects are aimed at young researchers (no more than six years of postdoctoral experience) and cover fundamental scientific research and development in all scientific research domains. The duration of these projects is two years.

Within these cooperation projects between Flanders and South Korea, the FWO and the NRF each reimburse the travel and accommodation expenses of their own researchers. More specifically, in addition to the travel expenses, the FWO provides Flemish researchers with a daily allowance of € 66 (or a maximum of € 1650 per month) to cover the accommodation costs. NRF pays South Korean researchers a total annual amount of up to KRW 20,000,000 (approximately € 15,000) to cover travel costs to/from and their stay in Flanders.

Applications must be submitted simultaneously to the FWO by a research group from Flanders and to the NRF by a research group from South Korea.

This call is open until 30 June 2019 (5 pm Belgian time). The projects will start on 1 January 2020.
