The ERDF department is also responsible for the administrative coordination of the Beliris projects. Beliris is a cooperation between the federal authority and the Brussels-Capital Region, aimed at the promotion of the image of Brussels as the Belgian and European capital.
Beliris, a public entity that was set up by a Cooperation Agreement between the Brussels-Capital Region (BCR) and the federal authorities, promotes Brussels by implementing various construction, renovation and restoration projects, for which it relies in part on federal budgets. As such, this public service acting as a contracting authority contributes to sustainable projects that improve the quality of life of Brussels residents and visitors to the capital.
Within Brussels International, the Beliris Department is responsible for advising the regional government and for ensuring that the initiatives agreed between the latter and the federal government are respected.
