Université Libre de Bruxelles

The first framework agreement with the Université Libre de Bruxelles (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 to finance new bilateral projects. This provides seed funding for cooperative projects submitted jointly by teams from ULB and UNIL. Five calls for projects were launched in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2021, and 2022.

An email is sent to all persons concerned as soon as a new call is launched.
