The Fund promotes both, high level research and training of young researchers by providing financial support to research projects with a maximum duration of 3 years. The Fund has been created to support research on AIDS in Belgium, in 3 important domains:

  • translational research in virology
  • epidemiology
  • prevention and health promotion

Subject of the call

  • In 2019, the Fund will award a grant of € 300.000 to support one project on remission of HIV infection, including basic, translational and clinical aspects.
  • The project must be submitted by a multidisciplinary and multicenter consortium including researchers in basic science (virology, immunology, etc ….), and clinical research scientists; researchers in the field of psychosocial aspects can also be included.

By launching this call, the Fund wants to encourage research teams from different universities and institutions to develop joined efforts on the search for a remission of HIV infection. This should be obtained by synergizing and bridging efforts among different research stakeholders active in Belgium and recognized for their expertise in the field of HIV including basic researchers, clinical virologists, immunologists, clinicians and any other actors, such as professionals in the field of psychosocial sciences.
