    Info
  • Final decision of the Ministers Council: 5/10/2012
  • Duration of the research: 1/1/2013 - 31/12/2017
  • Research projects: 108

Objectives:

On 5th October 2012, the Council of Ministers approved the launch of the first phase (2012-2017) of the recurrent framework programme for research, BRAIN-be (Belgian Research Action through Interdisciplinary Networks).

This framework programme allows through the funding of research projects based on scientific excellence and European and international anchorage to meet the needs for scientific knowledge of the federal departments and to support the scientific potential of the Federal Scientific Institutions (FSIs).


Description:

The framework programme is structured around 6 thematic areas:

1. Ecosystems, biodiversity, evolution
2. Geosystems, universe and climate
3. Cultural, historical and scientific heritage,
4. Federal public strategies
5. Major societal challenges
6. Management of collections

BRAIN-be is open to the whole Belgian scientific community: universities, public scientific institutions and non-profit research centres.

The framework programme is based on the financing of two types of research projects:
• Four-year network projects with the possibility of two-year projects and,
• Pioneer projects lasting a maximum of two years.

Each year a call for proposals is launched for these two types of research projects.
