At the Fonds de la recherche scientifique (F.R.S.-FNRS), the Weave process is available for the funding scheme Projet de recherches (PDR).

Eligible researchers from the following universities can submit projects according to the Weave process:

  • Université Catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain)
  • Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB)
  • Université de Liège (ULiège)
  • Université de Mons (UMons)
  • Université de Namur (UNamur)
  • Université Saint-Louis - Bruxelles (USL-B)

Weave applications are part of the SNSF's "project funding" instrument. Within this instrument, applicants are entitled to have up to three grants running simultaneously, provided that one of them is a Weave/Lead Agency/International Co-Investigator Scheme or European Partnership project and provided the three projects clearly address different topics.

The duration of the projects is the same in both countries and must not exceed 48 months. The project is due to start on the same date in both countries.

The next deadline for submissions to the F.R.S.-FNRS is 4 July 2024.

If the application is submitted to the F.R.S.-FNRS, a copy must be submitted to the SNSF via mySNF within seven days.

If you are planning to submit your Lead Agency proposal in a language other than English (only possible in certain disciplines of the humanities and social sciences), you will need to discuss this with all of the involved agencies in advance.
