Research funding


Universiteit Hasselt - Knowledge in action


The ERDF programme is one of the programmes funded by the European Regional Development Fund (EFRD).
The ERDF programme 2014 - 2020 focusses on five priority areas:

1. Stimulating research, technological developments and innovation.
2. Strengthening the competitiveness of the small businesses
3. Stimulating the transition towards a low carbon economy
4. Sustainable urban development
5. Technical assistance

In 2014, the new European programme period started. This meant the start of a new programme period for the ERDF as well.  The operational programme of the ERDF, however, is not yet definitive at the moment.  As soon as more information is available, you will find it here.
