  • Research projects: 120

Objectives:

The Federal Science Policy Office is responsible for coordinating the preparation and the follow-up for the scientific section of the bilateral agreements for economic, industrial, scientific and technological cooperation which Belgium has concluded for already more than twenty years with a number of countries. The Federal Science Policy Office chairs the Belgian delegation at the regular meetings (about every 2 years) of the Mixed Committees for S&T cooperation where representatives of both countries examine the results of the bilateral cooperation and set together the course of future common projects.

Within this framework agreements, science policy acts as driving force for the overall relationships and the promotion of the commercial traffic between the concerned countries. The S&T cooperation can take various forms: information exchange, exploratory expert mission, common research and demonstration or valorization project.

Alongside co-ordination, moreover, the Federal Science Policy Office itself finance co-operation projects in their areas of competence, particularly projects involving space research or that are linked to subjects dealt with national research programmes or conducted by federal scientific institutions under the jurisdiction of the Minister of Science Policy.
In this way, they contribute to the international valorisation of this research and the transfer of know-how.

Description:

BULGARIA

A bilateral agreement for economic, industrial, scientific and technical cooperation between the Belgian-Luxemburg Economic Union (BLEU) and the Republic of Bulgaria was signed on the 22nd of March 1974.

Within this framework, the the XIIth meeting of the Mixed Committee for S&T cooperation was held in Sofia on the 22nd of Mai 2003; 8 cooperation projects have been approved.

CHINA

C’est en 1979 que fut signé un accord bilatéral de coopération économique, industrielle, scientifique et technique entre l'Union économique belgo-luxembourgeoise (UEBL) et la République populaire de Chine.

PROJETS
Les principes applicables aux appels BELSPO relatifs à des projets à mener en commun par les équipes de recherche belges et chinoises sont les suivants :
La priorité est donnée à des projets en réseau (partenariat entre plusieurs institutions de recherche, entreprises et/ou universités – de préférence de régimes linguistiques différents – ainsi qu’à des projets pouvant être associés à des programmes internationaux).
Le financement de projets bilatéraux repose sur la réciprocité. Chaque pays finance la recherche réalisée sur son territoire. Lorsque des personnes sont détachées, les frais de séjours sont pris en charge par le pays d’accueil, l’autre pays finançant les frais de déplacement internationaux et le salaire de ses experts.

• Appel du 20 octobre 2004 (projets 2004-2006)
Une sélection a eu lieu, consécutivement à l’appel lancé par BELSPO et le MOST (Ministry of Science and Technology), lors de la 15e réunion de la Commission mixte Chine-Belgique de coopération scientifique et technologique. C’est ainsi que 10 projets ont été financés à Bruxelles, relatifs aux domaines suivants :
- recherche spatiale
- gestion durable de l’environnement
- biotechnologie

- transport

• Appel du 1 mars 2007 (projets 2007-2010)
Lors de la 16e réunion de la Commission mixte à Pékin, 7 projets se sont vus octroyer un financement pour les domaines de recherche suivants :
- normes en matière de produits (sécurité alimentaire et construction)
- médecine : (médecine nucléaire, évaluation de la médecine chinoise traditionnelle à l’aune des normes de la médecine occidentale)
- pandémies (grippe aviaire, SIDA…)
- patrimoine culturel et naturel (méthodes de protection, remise en état et numérisation)

INDIA

Within the framework of the agreement between Belgium and India on cooperation in the field of research and development, the second 'Joint Commission' meeting, held in Delhi on April 13th, 2011, decided to organise joint calls for proposals for networking activities.

On August 20, 2012 BELSPO launched the first call. That call was limited to current projects funded within the SSD research programme, the IUAP's and activities of the Federal Scientific Institutions (FSI).

On December 17, 2013 BELSPO launched together with DST (Dpt for Science and Technonolgy, India) a second call for proposals for networking activities. This call was limited like the precedent call to projects already funded, in particular within the BRAIN, STEREO, IAP research programmes, and ESA activities or activities of the Federal Scientific Institutions (FSI).
