Research & Development

The Brussels-Capital Region provides funding for basic technological and industrial research, which includes the development of prototypes, new products and production processes, as well as the dissemination and transfer of technologies and technological innovation. Financial support is granted to companies, universities and research centres.

The Region is one of the European hubs for scientific research and advanced technologies. It has adopted a proactive policy based on its natural assets: the presence of four university centres of excellence and four institutes of industrial higher education, three faculties of medicine and academic hospitals, as well as several public and private research centres. Within this nexus of intellectual capital, university research centres are closely linked with Brussels-based companies involved in the high-tech sector.
