Sixteen projects of "Actions de Recherche Concertées (ARC)" financed by the FWB at ULiège

In Research

A funding tool set up by the Fédération Wallonie Bruxelles (FWB) to promote original fundamental research projects based on scientific excellence, the ARC - Actions de recherche concertées - are granted every two years at ULiège.

Sixteen scientific projects have been selected for the period 2023-2027 for a global budget of a little more than 10.000.000 €.

The "Actions de Recherche Concertées" grant awarded by the FWB aims to promote original fundamental research projects, based on scientific excellence, without thematic restrictions, which involve scientists from different laboratories who wish to work in a dynamic of creative cooperation, within a specific field or in an interdisciplinary manner.

The Board of Directors of ULiège has approved, on the proposal of the Research and Valorisation Councils, the list of 16 "Actions de Recherche Concertées (ARC)" projects - evaluated by experts from within and outside the University of Liege - for funding over a period of 4 years (2023-2027) and a global budget of just over €10,000,000. The administrative follow-up of the implementation of the projects is entrusted to RISE, the Research, Innovation, Support and Enterprise administration of ULiège.
