The Scholarships, Agreements and Collaborations Committee aims to promote relations with both public and private institutions in order to carry out joint projects of common interest. These relationships can be through collaborations and/or sponsorships, either punctual or long term, making known the participating entities. We currently have established sponsors such as the Fundación Ramón Areces or the Consejería de Cultura y Ciencia de la Embajada de España ante el Reino de Bélgica.
Thanks to these collaborations and/or sponsorships we have been able to carry out the following activities:
- Elaboration of our own travel grant. This economic support, reserved only for members, was created in order to encourage participation in seminars, congresses, or courses.
- Fostering diplomatic relations between Belgian and Spanish institutions by acting as an intermediary between them, through the implementation of previously established internship agreements with Spanish universities/study centres under the Erasmus+ framework. Thanks to this project we give young students in scientific careers the opportunity to get their first work experience in Belgium. Currently, we have agreements with the Faculty of Sciences of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM).
- To promote science carried out by Spanish researchers in Belgium through various media. We mainly collaborate with two radio programs: "Investigadores por el mundo" by Antonio Armas on Libertad FM and #CientíficosExterior de Radio Exterior by RNE (Punto de Enlace). We also participate in the magazine Carta de España of the Ministry of Labour.
The organization of events and webinars. This committee is also involved in the organization of CEBE's own events or included in thematic cycles in collaboration with other institutions, in order to facilitate their implementation and good development.
