Mission and actions


The Club of associated research organisations (CLORA) was established in 1991 in Brussels by nine French organisations wishing to pool their resources and to strengthen their relations with the European Union in the fields of research, technology, innovation and training. In Brussels, the CLORA gathers the liaison offices of 10 public research centres and universities. CLORA’s full network gathers 33 members.

The CLORA fulfill the following missions:

  • Synergy of skills and resources devoted to the relations of its members with the European Union institutions and relevant stakeholders in research, technology, innovation and training;
  • Strategic monitoring, analysis and dissemination of information on EU policies and programmes related to these areas;
  • Actions of common interest such as events planning, monthly information day, formal meetings with stakeholders of the R&I and European public affairs.
