Belnet, a history related to technological development
From the “supercomputers” at the end of the 1980s to our current high-tech services, our history is in line with the continued growth or our team, our services offered and our network capabilities!
A history of more than 25 years
Belnet was founded in 1993 as a research program within the Belgian Science Policy, already over 25 years ago. Since then, Belnet has worked to develop knowledge and network structures in Belgium for the needs of Belgian higher education and research.
In 2009, a law broadened Belnet’s field of competence to the entire Belgian public administration. From January 1, 2000, Belnet acquired the status of separately managed state service within the Belgian Federal Science Policy Office. This specific structure gives it greater autonomy and flexibility to cope with the incessant evolution of the telecommunication and internet fields.
