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
Since the first secretary-general, Professor Robert Goldschmidt, this
unconditional support has never been discontinued since more
than three quarters of a century.
