AFR 2021 Call for proposals

The FNR is pleased to announce the 2021 AFR Call for proposals. The deadline is Wednesday, 10 March 2021, 14:00 CET.

AFR is one of the FNR’s longest-running funding schemes and now serves the specific purpose of providing funding for the training of doctoral candidates. Grants are awarded in the form of an employment contract with the host institution, rather than in the form of a scholarship.

New from 2021

FNR mandates ORCID for applications as of 2021: The Fonds National de la Recherche (FNR) will mandate the use of an Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) as part of its grant application process. Starting from January 1st, 2021 all Beneficiaries are asked to have a unique ORCID identifier.

The FNR’s new narrative CV: this annex, complementary to the ORCID ID, is set up by the FNR in the framework of its grant application in order to align itself with the principles of the DORA to broaden what can considered in the evaluation, provide context for the evaluation criteria, and limit the possible bias of the reviewers/panel during the assessment.
