As of January 1 the Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO) has been made responsible for all funding of large infrastructures for research, including all programmes previously managed by the Hercules Foundation.
To bring about this transition and continue the successful management of these funding instruments, the FWO team has been enlarged with new colleagues who have acquired the necessary expertise in previous years with the aforementioned programmes. Both Caroline Volckaert, as advisor, and Sandra Willen, as file administrator, will follow up the existing VSC agenda within the FWO.
This continuity is very important to us: it is our explicit aim to offer researchers in Flanders at least the same access to infrastructures and an equally high level of support as VSC has offered for the Tier-1 and Tier-2 up to now.
