Bus/Financial - Government / Politics
Dutch term or phrase: finaliteit
"Het begrotingsprogramma 71.3 “Wetenschappelijk onderzoek met economische finaliteit” omvat de maatregelen die specifiek kennisuitbreiding met dit doel stimuleren."

This is a Belgian text about budgets for fianncing research.

Though "finality" is given as a translation by Oxford-Duden, this makes no sense to me in the context.
Any suggestions?
Any references?
