Our partners

The FRIS program has been established as close cooperation between the Department of Economics, Science and Innovation and the knowledge institutions in Flanders. With each of them, the Flemish government concluded the necessary agreements to allow data delivery from their systems to the FRIS portal.In this way, the institutions remain the authentic source of their own data, and the exchange of information no longer will be based on ad hoc collecting a set of data for FRIS.

In the past, only the current research information of the Flemish universities was visible on the research portal.Today we can introduce the following institutions as official partners of the FRIS program.
