Signing of the new cooperation between the FWO and NSFC
The official signing of the new cooperation between the FWO and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) took place in Brussels on 30th June.
The renewed cooperation will focus on two-year projects that wish further to strengthen and optimise scientific cooperation between researchers from China and Flanders. Calls with deadlines will now be used instead of the current ‘open submission’-system. The travel costs for researchers will be funded for the implementation and execution of joint research activities. In the coming months the FWO and NSFC will formulate guidelines for researchers further so that the first call can be launched in 2016 with projects starting in January 2017.
More information about the launch of the first call, the eligibility requirements, application and evaluation procedure will appear during the course of 2016 on /en/fellowships-funding/international-collaboration/scientific-cooperation/cooperation-with-china/
