FWO: Publications and research data in FWO-applications

New FWO reporting requirements

At the end of 2022, the FWO introduced new reporting requirements for research results resulting from research funded at least partly by FWO funds.

To comply, it is essential that you link your publications and datasets in Biblio to the corresponding FWO project registered in GISMO. In this way, the required information about the results of your FWO project can flow to the FRIS research portal.

From 2024 onwards, for the evaluation of scientific reports the FWO will only take into account publications that have been included in FRIS. Hence it is important to already link your publications in Biblio to your FWO project now.
