International mobility

International mobility

The FWO encourages mobility among researchers and international contacts between research groups. Travel paid for with FWO funds is only allowed if positive travel advice is given by the employer (research institution to which you are affiliated as a researcher).

In addition, the FWO is involved in a number of research institutions such as the Academia Belgica in Rome and the Dutch-Flemish Institute in Cairo (NVIC). Be sure to check out what these institutions can do for your research.
