ULB is a comprehensive university with expertise in a variety of areas, from life sciences and human sciences to more technical disciplines. The skills and equipment of the University's research units are available to businesses, public organisations, and associations, meeting their need for various services (expertise, testing, consulting, custom training courses, studies, etc.).

To this end, ULB provides support by:

  • determining which team is best suited to meeting the need for expertise or a specific service;
  • giving access to high-end equipment and know-how, including through ULB's 13 technology platforms which gather expertise and equipment that it makes available to private companies as well as to its own researchers.

ULB Technology platforms

Each platform consists in teams from various laboratories, research institutes, or faculties, that can offer integrated services by combining cutting-edge equipment, technological expertise, and interdisciplinary scientific expertise. ULB currently has 13 technology platforms, most of which are active in the fields of life sciences and engineering.
