The F.R.S.-FNRS has developed a large range of funding instruments which match the needs of research. They are implemented in accordance with a "bottom up" approach; all scientific domains are encouraged, within the context of initiatives presented by the researchers and selected in accordance with evaluation procedures based on "peer review". With no research centres of its own, the F.R.S.-FNRS finances researchers who are mainly employed in university institutions  both as staff and on a running and equipment level.

The "Grants and Mandates" and "Credits and Projects" calls are open once a year. In addition, throughout the year the F.R.S.-FNRS supports the activities of networks, mobility and dissemination.
