The mission of the Research Foundation - Flanders (FWO) is to stimulate and support groundbreaking fundamental research in all areas of science at the universities in the Flemish Community, including collaboration agreements between Flemish universities and other research institutes. The FWO funds excellent and promising researchers as well as research projects following an interuniversity competition and an evaluation by national and international experts. The only criterion is the outstanding quality of researcher and research proposal, regardless of scientific discipline, host institute, gender, politics or religious persuasion.
