logo ECOOMSince the early 1990s the universities are using a list of research disciplines. This list was originally compiled by the Research Foundation - Flanders (FWO) and was subsequently supplemented on an ad hoc basis. This list orders scientific research in uniform and transparent categories, with attention for social and human sciences. Initially, the list contained about 400 disciplines.

The FRIS data suppliers categorize the research projects and research groups with these disciplines. They use the disciplines to report to the Flemish government via the annual FRIS reporting and integrate them into their internal databases such as staff and research databases.
