Launch of 2019 PRIDE Call

The FNR is pleased to announce the opening of the 3rd PRIDE Call. Please note, the application process is reduced to a one-stage application (it is no longer required to submit a “Commitment of Participation”). The deadline for the full proposal is Tuesday, 8 October 2019, 14:00 CET.

In the PRIDE Call 2019, the FNR may award up to 130 PhD grants in blocks to Doctoral Training Units.

Following the recommendations that have come from the external assessment of the National Quality Framework for Doctoral Training (NQFDT), there are a number of additional requirements, that need to be addressed by the PRIDE applicants, i.e.

  • Applicants are required to describe / refer to the institutional structures/procedures for the handling and resolution of conflict situations between doctoral candidates and their supervisors.
  • Only supervisors having successfully undergone an independent assessment of their research and supervision track record (e.g. ADR, HDR, other) may participate as supervisor under PRIDE.
  • Doctoral training units (DTUs) must offer possibilities for supervisors to continuously develop their supervision skills.
  • In the constitution of the CET (comité d’encadrement de thèse at UL) at least one member of the CET must be from a research institution abroad.

For every doctoral candidate, an individual PhD plan needs to be implemented. Read more about these additional requirements and their context in the interview with Marie-Claude Marx about the recommendations that have come from the assessment of the National Quality Framework for Doctoral Training (NQFDT). You may also download the assessment report of the NQFDT.

Please also refer to the Call documents for further details.
