Research data from the Flemish universities, university colleges and numerous research centers

More than 42,000 research projects. 85,000 researchers. 458,000 scientific publications. Meet Flanders Research Information Space (FRIS). A wealth of research data and results, waiting to be used. By you.

FRIS aggregates all the (partially) publicly funded research in Flanders.

With FRIS you can quickly and easily look up further information on researchers, their projects and publications, allowing you to find your way to experts and their areas of expertise faster.  FRIS opens the doors that would otherwise remain closed. More detailed information about the content of the portal can be found here. FRIS is working hard to broaden the content. Soon you will also be able to find information about scientific equipment, patents and datasets in FRIS

FRIS is a source of inspiration for reporting, analysis and statistics, wants to improve policy making and have a better focus on trends.

FRIS wants to bring researchers closer together, stimulate interdisciplinary research, enable networking between researchers and help finding experts in certain disciplines.

The Flemish universities, university colleges and numerous research institutions have already linked their systems to FRIS, automatically ensuring their data feeds directly into our information space.

As soon as a research institute changes something in their systems, you’ll immediately see the change in FRIS.

How can you  access this wealth of information?

There are two ways.

Via the online portal where you will find anything you want to know about research in Flanders. 

Or, via our free open data license where you can request all the research data that you want to use for your own research and development. The "open data" are available via the FRIS Research Portal and via open APIs. You can find a further description of the FRIS services here.

You will find more information on the FRIS-website:
