Return grants for researchers working abroad
The Back to Belgium Grants of the federal Science Policy are intended to foster the return to Belgium of talented researchers doing R&D in a foreign research centre.
Intending to stimulate the S&T cooperation, the Federal Science Policy Office (BELSPO) does implement a fellowship scheme of 6 to 18 months for highly qualified non EU researchers.
