European and other international networks

FWO is a member of several international networks, ranging from expert committees for scientific discussion to small research centres providing also research facilities for researchers. With its participation FWO enables researchers in Flanders to exchange and cooperate with their colleagues abroad. The scheme below offers an overview of the networks supported by FWO, mentioning the Flemish researchers who represent FWO and the entire Flemish research community of the respective domain or discipline(s).
