Today access to high-quality research infrastructure is vital for providing research opportunities and the ability to create knowledge and technologies. Such infrastructure attracts top scientists and makes it possible to carry out groundbreaking research. Technological change is accelerating today at an unprecedent-ed rate. It is creating a whole new world. As a consequence of this immense progress, research infrastructure is becoming more complicated and consequently, more expensive. That is why the Flemish government is continuing to invest in decent infrastructure.
This publication by EWI and FWO offers an overview of the existing and new international research infrastructure in Flanders. The large- scale research infrastructure, in which the Flemish government has invested since 2011, is also covered.
