Fonds Ernest Solvay Funds

Deadline: 15th March 2021

It does this by supporting initiatives in both education and entrepreneurship in areas of science and technology such as chemistry, physics, biology, mathematics and earth sciences. The medical and pharmaceutical fields are not a priority.

Applications for support can be submitted by completing the online form in the language of the form. Twice a year, in the spring and autumn, the Management Committee meets to select initiatives which are in accordance with the aim of the Fund. Projects with potential impact and an innovative character can be supported.
