The Belgian National Committee for Radio-electricity is one of the committees of the Royal Academy for Sciences, Litterature and Fine Arts of Belgium.
It played a fundamental role in the birth of URSI in 1920 and of its mother international association, the International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU).
Since the first secretary-general, Professor Robert Goldschmidt, this unconditional support has never been discontinued since more than three quarters of a century.
A more detailed overview can be found in the web page on the origins of URSI .
