IAP: Interuniversity attraction poles
The "Interuniversity Attraction Poles" (IAP) Programme aims to provide support for teams of excellence in basic research that belong to Belgium’s various (linguistic) Communities and work as part of a network in order to increase their joint contribution to general scientific advances and, where applicable, to international scientific networks.
The programme’s objectives are to:
> award teams already recognised in the international scientific community additional human and material resources in order to put together a sufficient critical mass;
> encourage interactions between Belgium’s Communities and consolidate ties between universities belonging to these Communities in order to form lasting networks;
> develop or create collaborations between teams from different institutions and promote complementarity and interdisciplinarity between these teams;
> enable young teams to benefit from the environment of excellence constituted by a network and its international influence in order to ensure continuity in the excellence of basic research in Belgium.
