Hi let's ...

Leuven has great potential for research collaboration. Leuven is home to several world-renowned research institutes and technology platforms that generate an incredibly vast collection of cutting-edge science and innovative technologies in a wide range of domains.

KU Leuven is consistently ranked among Europe’s top 20 academic research centers and is continually working to enhance and reinforce this position. University Hospitals Leuven enrich the Leuven region with one of Europe’s most modern and dynamic healthcare infrastructures.

Imec, Leuven’s nanoelectronics research institute, performs world-leading research in nanoelectronics and maintains global partnerships in ICT, healthcare and energy. Several departments of iMinds and the Flemish Institute for Biotechnology (VIB) are also located in Leuven.

KU Leuven, the Leuven-based VIB and iMinds departments, and imec have a combined R&D budget of €750 million and employ about 22,500 people, 8,000 of whom are researchers.
