Palaeontologica Belgica is a scientific research organisation that actively promotes, supports, and protects Belgian paleontology in all its facets. The organisation was founded in 2020 and is a non-profit association (vzw-asbl) that operates independently. Its founding members come from different Belgian geo-scientific organisations and work projectwise on various paleontological initiatives. In addition to a good cooperation with federal research institutions, the academic world and international organisations, a great deal of attention is also aimed towards 'citizen science' and outreach to the general public.
