THE FINANCING OF THE FNRS AND OF ITS ASSOCIATE FUNDS

On the basis of initiatives presented by researchers, the FNRS promotes the generation and development of knowledge at laboratories and facilities located primarily at the nine universities in French-speaking Community of Belgium. French-speaking Community of Belgium has approximately 4.5 million inhabitants. 69,000 students attend the universities, which award 8,000 basic graduate degrees and 600 doctorates on a annual basis. In 2007, the breakdown of the funding of the FNRS and of its Associate Funds is as follows :

MOBILITY AND INTERNATIONAL OPENNESS

  • The FNRS considers the internationalisation of scientific research to be of fundamental importance.
  • All FNRS researchers are able to enjoy the benefits of their appointments during fellowships abroad.
  • The FNRS has put in place several schemes to promote international co-operation:
  • Foreign researchers are appointed as short-term postdoctoral researchers to promote international mobility and, for a maximum of three years, can collaborate with a FNRS-financed programme. More than 260 foreign researchers have so far benefited from this initiative.
  • The visiting fellowship grant enables a researcher to work abroad. Reciprocally, foreign researchers are able to work in laboratories financed by the FNRS.
  • The funds for a brief visiting fellowship enable a researcher to acquire new knowledge at a laboratory abroad.
  • University academics and foreign professors have the opportunity to carry out scientific missions lasting up to 12 months.
  • The FNRS also provides assistance through contact groups, so that Belgian and foreign specialists are able to meet and work together. 101 contact groups are currently active.

In addition, the FNRS participates with a large number of sister institutions in various scientific co-operation agreements. It participates in several Associated European

laboratories (AEL), International Scientific Cooperation Projects (ISCP) and European Research Groups (ERG) with the CNRS (National Center for Scientific Research) and INSERM (The Natioanel Health and Medical Research Institute).

These far-ranging co-operation projects guarantee not only the involvement of our researchers at European and international levels but also strengthen their competitiveness and visibility.

Moreover, the FNRS serves on bodies coordinating European research, of which it is often a founding member (CERN, ESF, ESRF, MBO, ESO, EuroHorcs, etc . ), which enables it to ensure the participation of researchers from our community in high-level international scientific co-operation initiatives.

gifts and scientific prizes
GIFTS AND SCIENTIFIC PRIZES

The FNRS wouldlike to takethisopportunity to thank all of its sponsors whosegenerositycontributesdirectly to financingresearch.

Donations and bequestsmaybeearmarked for specificresearch, as requested in the donation or will.

The public authorities have establishedvarioustax-exemption measures for bequests and gifts:

  • Bequests are subject to only 6.6% inheritancetax.

Moreover, thanks to private and industrial patrons, eachyear the Fundawardsseveralscientificprizes in various disciplines.

The FNRS publishes a widelydistributedquarterly magazine, La Lettre du FNRS whichprovides information about the Fund’sactivities and helps to makeitsresearchersknown to the general public.
