Brussels, 18 Apr 2003
The Belgian government's scientific and technical information service (STIS) has launched a new portal for research and innovation.
'Research.be' provides visitors with a gateway to the main websites dedicated to Belgian research and innovation, either at a national level, or within the framework of European or international cooperation. STIS also intends for the portal to strengthen the European Research Area (ERA).
The portal provides information in French, Dutch and English, and is aimed at researchers in Belgium and abroad, as well as policy makers, public administrations, managers, enterprises and the users of scientific results.
The portal is expected to grow over the coming months, one source of growth being the news and events which visitors can submit. To access the new portal, please visit: http://www.research.be
