After coming here as children, on a school trip or with their families, our visitors generally know the Museum of Natural Sciences fairly well. They do not necessary know about the research institute behind it – the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences.
In this section you can learn about the four essential components of our mission, the institute’s new organisational structure that was introduced in 2013, its Belgian and international partners, and its annual reports sinds 2009.
In 2014 the Institute's scientific departments (not the Museum) underwent a peer review. You can find an evaluation summary in the 'Management Summary' (PDF below).
