Université Libre de Bruxelles

The first framework agreement with ULB was signed in 1991. UNIL's collaborative relationships in research with ULB, which have always been intense, and the high level of student mobility between the two institutions naturally led to the signing of a privileged partnership agreement in 2016. Regular meetings are planned to identify and develop new areas for collaboration (funds for the promotion of research projects, doctoral study days, collaboration between departments, etc.).

Call for joint projects

The privileged partnership between ULB and UNIL means that both institutions are committed to encouraging, strengthening and supporting cooperation in research and teaching as a priority.

As a result, they have created a joint annual fund of €30,000 to finance new bilateral projects.

This provides seed funding for cooperative projects submitted jointly by teams from UNIL and ULB. It offers project funding up to a maximum of €6,000.

Projects can include but are not limited to the following:

  • research project preparation
  • preparing and running a summer school
  • setting up and running a joint project
  • preparing and holding a conference or seminar
  • setting up a network of doctoral students.

The first call for projects was launched in 2017, the second call for projects was launched in 2018.
