Welcome to the FRO website !

The aim of the association is to stimulate research in ophthalmology and in visual function by awarding grants to research projects carried out under order of Belgian institutions. Use the navigation bar to explore the site.

After 20 years of support for eye examination, the FRO board has decided to make a major change to the type of research that the FRO will support in 2020.

The new initiative will be called BOCCS. This acronym stands for “Belgian Ophthalmology Cooperation in Clinical Sciences” and aims to emphasize “inter-institutional” cooperation in Belgium and “clinical” research.

The call is now OPEN. Read more by clicking on “BOCCS“.
