Four Scenarios• Scenario 1 - “Status quo” : this is basically an extrapolation of the current (2011) financial situation, with government funding increasing only by a yearly inflation rate of 3% and thus constant in real terms.• Scenario 2 - “Low growth” : in this scenario we foresee a yearly growth rate of government funding of 8%, as set forward by VRWI in their minimal guidelines for R&D-expenditure in Flanders towards 2020.• Scenario 3 - “Moderate growth” : government funding increases at a rate of 15% per year, which would result in doubling the government funding amount by 2016, but would only bring IBBT at that point at the same funding-level of other Strategic Research Centers in Flanders today.• Scenario 4 - “Ambitious growth” : this scenario would accelerate the alignment of IBBT‟s government funding with that of other SRC‟s in Flanders faster, i.e. doubling the total government funding by 2013. After the first 2 years, a yearly growth rate of 10% would then be applicable until 2016.
