They can get an FWO-VITO fellowship research topic is situated in one or more of the following strategic VITO research domains: Sustainable Energy, Sustainable Materials Management, Sustainable Chemistry, Sustainable Health or Sustainable Land Use.

This collaboration, where VITO supports the first two years of the research and FWO finances, after a positive evaluation, the third and fourth year, is now extended. Now also researchers with a PhD can be eligible for an FWO-VITO fellowship. This fellowship has a duration of 3 years, should be situated within the VITO research domains and is paid collectively by FWO and VITO (for an amount of approximately € 75,000 per fellowship).
