FRIS Research portal

Touching process


Your window to research in Flanders

Welcome to the new FRIS Research portal! The Flemish Government wants to offer you a unique window on publicly funded research in Flanders and by this way increase its visibility. The FRIS Research portal is also a source of inspiration for reporting, analysis and statistics, in order to improve policy making and to focus better on trends. It also wants to bring researchers closer together, stimulate interdisciplinary research, enable networking between researchers and help to find experts in certain disciplines.

The portal was developed in such a way that the most recent data are always offered. For example, each time a research institution changes something in its own database, that change is immediately implemented on the portal. There is a direct integration with the systems of the scientific institutions in Flanders and we are proud to offer their information, not only about researchers, research groups and publicly funded projects, but also about publications from 2008 onwards.

The FRIS Research portal brings a lot of new features and changes, including a new search functionality that can be triggered from each page on our web-site, and an expertfinder where you can browse through a list of classifications to find an expert in your domain.

For a comprehensive look at our new search functionality so far, you may want to check out the search requirements .

How can I find an expert for my article or interview?


The expert finder allows you to find experts (person or organisation) based on a search through the tree structure of the scientific disciplines in Flanders.

Still found double information on our portal?


This is possible. Researchers, working at different institutions, are provided seperately by each institution to the FRIS portal. We can link the names if your ORCIDs will be provided by the institutions. In the meantime you can report it.
