5.1.3. Belgium

FLaReNet Summary

Belgium has a special status as it has two different languages (Flemish (a dialect of Dutch) and French). Therefore, the activities on HLT are mostly supported within the Flanders and Wallons regions governments. As they themselves mention, because of the language, the researchers in Flanders have cooperated more in HLT in the past with The Netherlands than with their French-speaking colleagues in Belgium.
