The holders of personal research funding grants which started in 2018 will have to submit their financial report from 1 to 30 September 2018. Whether they can continue with their project in 2019, will be decided based on their financial report, i.e., it will not be necessary to submit the application to continue funding.

The submission of the final report for the grants which ended in 2017 will take place from 1 March to 2 April 2018 until 17:00.


Postdoctoral researchers will submit their annual report from 1 February to 1 March 2018.
