Agenda

Research programme
"Science for a sustainable development" (SSD)

On 4 March 2005, the Council of Ministers approved the research programme “Science for a Sustainable Development” (2005-2009) for which the federal State and the federated entities concluded a cooperation agreement.

The priority research areas are the following:

  • Energy
  • Transport and mobility
  • Agri-food
  • Health and environment
  • Climate (including Antarctica)
  • Biodiversity (including Antarctica and the North Sea)
  • Atmosphere and terrestrial (including freshwater) and marine ecosystems (including Antarctica and the North Sea).
  • Transversal research: in order to better translate/operationalise the concept of sustainable development, in and between the priority areas, transversal and generic research is necessary.

The research must also take account of the (complexity of the) interactions between the priority research areas.

Within these priority research areas, the Programme encourages the submission of proposals on questions concerning standardisation.

The Belgian Science Policy will launch various calls for proposals with regard to the different research areas of the Programme, in conformity with the indicative timetable enclosed. The Belgian Science Policy now launches a second call for proposals.

Call for proposals 2

The present call fits within the following research areas:

  • Energy
  • Transport and mobility
  • Agri-food
  • Health and environment
  • Biodiversity (including Antarctica and the North Sea)
  • Terrestrial (including freshwater) and marine ecosystems of the North Sea
  • Transversal research

Closing dates

  • Expression of interest: 17 March 2006
  • Research proposals: 20 April 2006 at 15:30 hours
