Thematic brochures

Thematic brochures comprise a collection published on the initiative of UCL and its partners: the former Académie Louvain and the Universités de Namur and Saint-Louis Bruxelles.

Around on a central theme, thematic brochures aim to highlight exploitable research, that is, the know-how and advanced technologies developed in university research laboratories with the potential for commercial development, non-commercial application, or progress in the humanities.

The brochures emphasise the interdisciplinary nature of UCL research, teams and partner institutions. Their purpose is to promote the potential of academic research beyond Belgian borders and to inspire partnerships with businesses, public institutions and all concerned economic actors.
