The website www.innovationdata.be provides a set of indicators describing the progress made by Belgium and its Regions in the field of innovation. The website has been developed by the Federal Planning Bureau at the request of the Belgian Science Policy Office, following the Federal Government's decision to create a transversal technology platform.

The Science Policy department of the federal authorities (Belspo) is responsible for designing and implementing research programmes and networks, as well as managing Belgium's participation in European and international organisations (European Space Agency, European Southern Observatory, European Synchrotron Radiation Facility, etc.). Belspo also supervises ten federal scientific institutes.
