Research Communication Unit


Whether a scientific publication, a Belgian or international research collaboration, a new research project, a colloquium, a rare piece of equipment, a prestigious award, a mission departure or return, etc., it is our job to pass on any non-run-of-the-mill news from ULB researchers:

Press Relations

There are lots of Belgian and foreign journalists – whether specifically focused on scientific research or generalists – interested in the latest research news from the ULB.

It is our job to keep them informed via:

  • Press releases presenting a discovery, a major new project, etc on a single page;

  • ULB experts, researchers and teachers commenting on a new item, analysing an event... in particular in Actu à chaud and 12 months, 12 experts.

  • Ad hoc meetings with ULB experts and press conferences;

All to be found on the Vous êtes journaliste page.
