FNR-funded projects during COVID-19: FAQs for grantholders & applicants

We understand that researchers and research teams may go through a difficult period triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic During 2020 and 2021, research projects have temporarily been suspended or delayed and key parts of projects may have to be postponed for a significant amount of time. Therefore, the FNR wishes to offer flexibility in the handling of grants and grant proposals for projects affected by the pandemic. We are also aware that a number of researchers are or have been heavily involved in the activities of the COVID-19 Task Force Work packages and have therefore suspended other ongoing research projects. As a general rule, we will therefore consider requests for cost-neutral extensions of FNR grants beyond the initially specified project duration. Under certain conditions, PhD candidates and Post-docs that have been on paid leave using the special “Leave for family reasons in connection with the coronavirus epidemic” (« Congé pour raisons familiales lié au coronavirus ») can also obtain a cost-neutral grant extension. Details can be found below.

Please note:  These measures are subject to adaptations over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please refer to this information regularly for updates. **Last update: 8 February 2022**
