150.000-200.000 euros for three years)
Research scholarships enable the recipient to work full-time for 4-12 months on a research project (typically 9 000 – 27 000 euros)
Encouragement scholarships are awarded to young researchers preparing a doctoral thesis or beginning a career in research (typically up to 5 000 euros)
