In the frame of the promotion of the European Research Area, the Federal Science Policy has launched a programme of return grants. These grants are aimed to promote the reintegration of highly qualified Belgian researchers working since at least 2 years in a foreign country.Eligible candidates must be Belgian nationals OR having spent at least 3 years in Belgium for R&D or higher education purposes, before their post-doctoral stay abroad.

There is no difference between a stay inside the EU and outside the EU, but the stay abroad must be post-doctoral. These mandates are granted for 24 months and on a full-time base. Concerned researchers may propose a research project to be performed in a Belgian research unit, in a research team related a.o. to Interuniversity attraction poles (IAP) or other research programmes financed by the Federal Authority.
