Figures

Annually more than 10 000 current projects in FRIS

The Flemish knowledge institutions incorporated in FRIS run more than 10,000 research projects annually. Most of them are situated in the field of biomedical Sciences (more than one third). The social, physical and technological sciences are approximately equally strongly represented (each almost 20%) and human sciences finally count for about 10% of the projects. The figures for 2017 are interim results (03/11/2017). Look in detail ... 

Annually more than 30,000 new publications in FRIS

Each institution has its own specializations

Between the individual institutions, there is a certain variation in the distribution across the various disciplines. The data displayed are those of projects started during the last five years (till 03/11/2017). Look in detail...

The publication profile of research in Flanders

The profile of research disciplines Flemish researchers are publishing in changes with time. The relative importance of some of the research disciplines has been increasing during the last 5 years such as agriculture and environment, chemistry and multidisciplinary sciences. For other research disciplines, the relative importance has been decreasing such as geosciences and space sciences, physics and arts and humanities. The accompanying figure is based on publications in Web of Science Journals. The figure indicates the relative importance of the research disciplines for the FRIS dataproviders (within Flanders) and thus does not reflect the specialisation of research in Flanders compared to the world standard.
