The AFFECT Project is funded by the Belgian Research Action through Interdisciplinary Networks (BRAIN-be). The BRAIN-be framework programme integrates several funding initiatives of the Belgian Science Policy Office (BELSPO) with the aim of stimulating even more effective collaborations in the research implemented by the Federal Scientific Institutions (FSIs) and the rest of the scientific community. It also endeavours to meet the needs of the federal departments in terms of knowledge in a more appropriate way.

The AFFECT Project is implemented within the Axis 5, Major societal Challenges.
