On the basis of initiatives presented by researchers, the FNRS promotes the generation and development of knowledge at laboratories and facilities located primarily at the nine universities in French-speaking Community of Belgium. French-speaking Community of Belgium has approximately 4.5 million inhabitants. 69,000 students attend the universities, which award 8,000 basic graduate degrees and 600 doctorates on a annual basis. In 2007, the breakdown of the funding of the FNRS and of its Associate Funds is as follows :
In addition, the FNRS participates with a large number of sister institutions in various scientific co-operation agreements. It participates in several Associated European
laboratories (AEL), International Scientific Cooperation Projects (ISCP) and European Research Groups (ERG) with the CNRS (National Center for Scientific Research) and INSERM (The Natioanel Health and Medical Research Institute).
These far-ranging co-operation projects guarantee not only the involvement of our researchers at European and international levels but also strengthen their competitiveness and visibility.
Moreover, the FNRS serves on bodies coordinating European research, of which it is often a founding member (CERN, ESF, ESRF, MBO, ESO, EuroHorcs, etc . ), which enables it to ensure the participation of researchers from our community in high-level international scientific co-operation initiatives.
