With the 'Science Vouchers' initiative, Innoviris wants to stimulate activities to raise awareness of science and new technologies among Brussels schoolchildren. With the Science Voucher you can receive funding of up to €5,000 per school, depending on your needs. The cheque can be requested every year for the organisation of activities in your nursery, primary or secondary school.
Are you eligible?
The initiative is aimed at Brussels schools (nursery, primary or secondary recognised by the Wallonia-Brussels Federation and the Flemish Community. The school submitting an application can call upon an awareness-raising actor for its action. This actor must be mentioned in the application form.
The procedure in 3 steps
- Submit your application through the Dutch or French page.
- Innoviris evaluates the application on the basis of the different criteria explained in the rules.
- At the end of the awareness-raising action, the applicant draws up an activity report and a statement of expenditure. After analysing the reports, the grant is paid out.
