FWO – Research Projects JEZ!

In the context of JEZ!, the FWO provides up to € 896,226 (excluding overhead) to support two-year research projects on “development of young people on a physical, artistic or psychosocial level”. Project proposals are preferably aimed at generating new knowledge that can contribute to the development of tools to enable teachers, sports clubs, cultural associations or youth workers to optimally support the development of young people. Within JEZ! research projects, young people or their representatives should be involved as stakeholders, both during the project genesis and during the implementation of the project.

JEZ! is the new youth collective of VTM, Qmusic, HLN and Belfius. The youth collective JEZ! strives to place young people back in the heart of society, to connect them and to give them a voice and a face. The JEZ! fund was set up at the King Baudouin Foundation to manage the proceeds of the fundraising in the context of JEZ!.

With this call, JEZ!, together with the FWO, wants to support fundamental scientific research on the physical, artistic or psychosocial development of young people.

Deadline: 2 April 2024
