Objectif Recherche – Focus Research aims to unite researchers across disciplines and institutes while promoting research activities and research profiles in Belgium.
Their main aims are to improve communication within the research community (e.g. by publishing a magazine and organizing events), establish an active dialogue with the government bodies responsible for science policy, at every political level (regions, linguistic communities, and federal state), provide support services for the career development of researchers, and finally support the professional development of early career researchers in and outside of academia through specific projects.
At the European level, OR/FR is member of the European Council of Doctoral Candidates and Junior Researchers (Eurodoc).
