    Info
  • Final decision of the Ministers Council: 22/6/2011
  • Duration of the research: 1/4/2012 - 30/9/2017
  • Budget: 156,530,000.00 EUR
  • Research projects: 47

Accompanying committee:

Members of the Federal Authority, Flemish Community, French Community, VLIR, CREF, 1 foreign expert


Objectives:

The "Interuniversity Attraction Poles" (IAP) Programme aims to provide support for teams of excellence in basic research that belong to Belgium’s various (linguistic) Communities and work as part of a network in order to increase their joint contribution to general scientific advances and, where applicable, to international scientific networks.

The programme’s objectives are to:

- award teams already recognised in the international scientific community additional human and material resources in order to put together a sufficient critical mass;
- encourage interactions between Belgium’s Communities and consolidate ties between universities belonging to these Communities in order to form lasting networks;
- develop or create collaborations between teams from different institutions that are active in the same or related fields;
- promote complementarity and interdisciplinarity between these teams;
- enable young teams to benefit from the environment of excellence constituted by a network and its international influence in order to ensure continuity in the excellence of basic research in Belgium;
- facilitate the insertion of the Belgian research teams into European and international networks.


Description:

The 47 research networks are classified into different categories: biology, medicine, chemistry, physics, applied sciences, historical sciences, social sciences and humanities.
