Fundamental research relies on networks without borders. The F.R.S.-FNRS encourages scientific collaborations between researchers of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation and their counterparts abroad. To this end, bilateral scientific cooperation agreements have been concluded with sister institutions throughout the world, which aim at facilitating the mobility of researchers, encouraging the setting up of centres of excellence and supporting the creation of new research areas. Two types of agreement can be distinguished:

  • strictly bilateral agreements. Please send your questions to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs. Vous devez activer le JavaScript pour la visualiser.)  .
    Le dépôt de ce type de demande se fait sur la plateforme de gestion des appels à propositions Sémaphore uniquement. Voir les modalités pratiques.
  • agreements involving a third party: Wallonia-Brussels International (WBI), the public administration responsible for international relations for Wallonia-Brussels. Please send your questions to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
