BeFinD is a consortium of four research centers at Belgian universities with the objective of covering the policy and research questions that are the most relevant to Financing for Development in the framework of the Academic Research Group for Policy Support (ACROPOLIS).

ACROPOLIS aims to support the decision-making of the Belgian Directorate General for Development Cooperation (DGD) by evidence-based research.

The programme is funded by both ARES-CCD and VLIR-UOS. It brings together policymakers from DGD, BTC, and other relevant governmental actors on the one hand and researchers from both Dutch- and French-speaking universities in Belgium on the other for a duration of three years (May 2014-2017).
