Methusalem is a funding channel managed by the Flemisch Government which provides resources for renowned international researchers. The channel allows researchers to focus on the groundbreaking research they are carrying out without having to look for financial resources themselves.
The University of Antwerp strengthens the recognition received by Methusalem researchers by classifying the research units they lead as research excellence centres and by providing extra support.
