CETIC participates actively to European Framework Programs for research and development which aims at the creation of the European Research Area (ERA) by improving integration and co-ordination of research in Europe. Through direct funding of projects via the European Commission, this major instrument for funding research in Europe allows CETIC to collaborate with significant R&D partners and develop and adopt new technologies that will be afterward useful for the Walloon economic sector.
