Evolution of different types of income

Between 2012 and 2018 our effective structural income has decreased, while our external competitive income has strongly risen.
Different types of income

BIRA-IASB is supported on a structural basis by the Federal Science Policy through the dotation, the Solar-Terrestrial Centre of Excellence (STCE) and the personnel envelope.

Taking into account the index-change, our effective structural income has decreased by 16% between 2012 and 2018, i.e., about -2.7% per year.

The federal non-structural, competitive, income (e.g. BRAIN, FED-tWIN, …) is steadily decreasing since 2015, as there are fewer and fewer opportunities. We notice, however, a strong rise in the external competitive income, pointing to a clear dynamism within the institute to compensate for this by searching for external funding involving intensive competition.
