FWO: Odysseus Programme

The Odysseus initiative is intended to offer start-up funding to a number of outstanding researchers who have built up a career outside Flanders, in order to develop a research group within a Flemish university or to set up a research line and become progressively more involved in the Flemish research establishment.

What makes the Odysseus programme so special, is the unique combination between sufficient project financing to establish a new research team within a Flemish university and a permanent position for the Odysseus beneficiary within the same university. These symbiosis forms the ideal starting point to attract high level, international researchers.

The procedure consists of nominations by one or more Flemish universities and a quality control by the FWO, which also controls the finances. An indexed sum of 12.7 million EUR has been made available since 2006. This can be increased.

Deadline for 2012 applications: 1 April 2012. For more information, see http://www.fwo.be/Odysseusprogramma.aspx
