Universiteit Antwerpen

The Centre invites researchers with an international reputation to undertake innovative research in the designated areas of interest. Usually the stay will be confined to a few weeks, aiming at the completion of recent work in progress, but longer stays may also be arranged, especially when they are combined with sabbatical leaves or other funded research schemes. In addition the Centre is prepared to support applications to the principle Flemish, European and international research funding bodies with a view to covering any expenses incurring from travel subsistence and research. Subject to availability, the Centre provides office space, PC facilities and full access to its specialist research library.
