The Centre for Research & Development Monitoring (Expertisecentrum Onderzoek en
Ontwikkelingsmonitoring, ECOOM) is an interuniversity consortium with participation
of all Flemish universities (KU Leuven, UGent, VUB, UAntwerpen and UHasselt).
Its mission is to develop a consistent system of R&D and Innovation (R&D&I)
indicators for the Flemish government. This indicator system has to assist
the Flemish government in mapping and monitoring the RD&I efforts in the Flemish region.
