Brussels is our living lab

Since we are fortunate to work in Brussels, we know better than anyone else what our changing society needs, and how our interdisciplinary approach can provide answers to those problems. The lines between research, education and service to society are blurring evermore.

We can be an urban university that embraces the superdiversity of Brussels.

If we become the university of an international, super diverse metropole, our identity will transform, completely in line with our roots in the Enlightenment, and fully focused on the future. The future of which the outlines can already be seen in Brussels today. The rest of the country will only be able to follow.

To the university, Brussels is a true living lab in all respects with unbound opportunities to us. We are a university that is driven and passionate to offer our knowledge and expertise to the benefit of society, of our capital, of its inhabitants. The interaction between university and capital gives us endless possibilities with regards to education, research, innovation and internationalisation. We can be an urban university that embraces the superdiversity of Brussels.
