Project description

The Odysseus programme supports outstanding researchers who have built up a career outside Flanders. The programme provides start-up funding in order to develop a research group within a Flemish university or to set up a research line and become progressively more involved in the Flemish research establishment. What makes this programme unique is the combination of a permanent position at a Flemish university and sufficient project funding to establish your own research team.  This symbiosis forms the ideal starting point to attract high level, international research to Flanders.
