C2W, an ambitious project designed to attract 30 international postdoc researchers to UMons and UNamur within the next 5 years!

The UMons and UNamur jointly submitted a proposal to the European call H2020-MSCA-COFUND-2020 (Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions). The project, entitled "C2W" for "Connect With Wallonia - Come 2 Wallonia" aims at promoting international mobility of researchers. It has just received the European Commission’s approval and will benefit from a total funding of 4,5 M€! The program will allow to recruit 30 talented postdoc researchers for two years within the 5 coming years, based on incoming mobility. All thematics are eligible, as long as they fall within the competence of the research institutes of UMons or UNamur. Interdisciplinary research proposals that integrate a wide range of scientific fields will be encouraged. Through these new fellowships, the UMons and UNamur expect to reinforce their international attractiveness and hope to see a positive impact on their chances of funding success in the future. The first call for postdoc fellowship proposals will open in December 2021!
