The IAP programme is aimed at giving temporary impulsion and at creating interuniversity high level networks in fundamental research. The choice of these networks was made following concerted deliberations between the universities and the public administration.
This programme has three objectives:
- providing advanced research teams with a critical mass of additional human and material resources (during 5 years);
- developing or creating collaboration between these teams and laboratories and other universities active in het same field or in
- inserting Belgian teams into European or international networks in fundamental research.
16 networks are operational at present, with about 70 research teams.
The research networks can be classified into different categories: biology, medicine, chemistry, physics, applied sciences, social sciences, historical sciences.
