Oproepen tot voorstellen 2022-2023

- PRE-ANNOUNCEMENT -

The Relance Strategy policy, which is intended to be greener, more digital and more inclusive, guides the research priorities for the three pillars.

Pillar 1 - Challenges and knowledge of the living and non-living world

Main call priorities thematic proposals:

  • A. DOCUMENTING CLIMATE CHANGE 
    • in Belgium 
    • in tropical regions
  • B. ASSESSING IMPACT OF CLIMATE CHANGES
    • on biodiversity and ecosystems services
    • on food security and health, 
    • on energy resources
  • C. TOWARDS ZERO CARBON BY 2050.
    • impacts of scenario low emission. 
    • "negative emission"
  • D. PREPARING FOR ADAPTATION TO CLIMATE CHANGE
    • risk and vulnerability.
    • towards climate services

Main drivers of the call:

  • Give priority to strategic scientific research, closer to federal decision support.
  • Encourage scientific projects that can cover several sub-themes.


Pillar 2
- Heritage science

The research priorities selected for this call are:

  1. Heritage Biobanks and collections of biological materials
  2. Search agile! Data aggregation, (re)indexation, web services and multilingual search
  3. Federal HEritage facing Societal challenges (FHESH)
  4. Observational archives, scarce data: learning from the past and/or remote spaces to shape views for tomorrow’s endeavours
  5. Mixed Materials Collections and Sustainable Solutions for Conservation

NB. In Pillar 2 'Heritage science', proposals must be coordinated and submitted by a Federal Scientific Institution.


Pillar 3 -
Federal societal challenges

The five dimensions of the Belgian relance strategy will guide the research priorities that can support the federal state: #BeMobile, #BeSustainable, #BeDigital, #BeInclusive et #Beproductive.

In the #BeMobile dimension, researchers are invited to study topics such as work/home commute, micromobility (e-bikes etc.), mobility as a service...

In the #BeSustainable dimension, is targeted i.a. improvement of green gas emission modelling and monitoring by imputing socioeconomic characteristics of households, examination of the benefits and burden distribution of the transition towards carbon neutrality, emerging technologies that are key in this transition (CO² capture, hydrogen...), the transition in food production and consumption (for example the protein shift) ...

The #BeDigital dimension invites scientific contributions to support the federal state in its overall governance towards more digital public services (governance aspects, privacy issues, cybercrime, co-creation with citizens...) and in its role as a regulator of a more digital economic and social life. Negative impacts of digitisation (e.g. on health, social relation, loss of biodiversity...) is also a crucial aspect for which the federal level is seeking scientific contributions.

#BeInclusive is open for scientific contributions that would sustain an inclusive growth, accounting for groups that were hit hard by the covid crisis. Reappraising our social safety net, monitoring specific groups, examining potential structural outcomes of income losses, eventual long-standing effects of stressful situations due to the pandemic... are topics for which researchers will be invited to submit proposals to sustain federal policies and supporting decision-makers.

#Beproductive calls upon contributions on the hybrid way of working that was set as a new norm during the pandemic, on emerging circular and biosourced economy and other promising sectors of the economy....
