Hitherto JEMU supported 30 research projects that were initiated by research teams from both RMCA and/or RBINS in collaboration with other Belgian and/or foreign partners.
There are two types of projects:
- flagship projects provide funding for new or ongoing studies that substantially contribute to the scientific valorisation of the collections of RMCA and RBINS;
- pilot projects provide support to scientists of RBINS and RMCA in order to carry out pilot research on a specific systematic problem.
