Research Institute for Nature and Forest – INBO (Belgium)
The Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO) is the research and knowledge centre for nature and its sustainable management and use within the Flemish region. INBO is a member of national and European research networks. The Own Capital of INBO (Eigen Vermogen INBO, EV INBO, PIC987950045) is a spin-off of INBO, and will assist this project as a third party. EV INBO is a separate legal entity, created and controlled by the Flanders Region. The Own Capital was created to enable INBO to perform research for third parties (different from the Flanders Region), to participate in international projects and to receive external funding on behalf of INBO (Decree issued by the Flemish Government, on 23 December 2005).
INBO is currently WP leader in the FP7 BESAFE project and contributes to the FP7 SPIRAL project. INBO is also responsible for leading WPs in a number of Belgian Science Policy projects, including ECOFRESH, BEES and VOTES.
