A spin-off is a company created with knowledge and technology stemming from research. This is how the University directly sends its high-level scientific activities out into society, by ensuring the knowledge and technologies it develops benefit the economy and industry.

ULB has set up a comprehensive programme to support the creation of spin-off companies:

  • ULB's technology and knowledge transfer unit (ULB-TTO) helps teams find funding to create spin-offs in Wallonia (FIRST Spin-off and maturation funds) and in Brussels (Launch)
  • Incubators provide support to research teams before the company is actually created, so they can continue refining on their technology or expertise and develop a business model.
  • The Theodorus investment fund, dedicated specifically to ULB spin-offs.

In addition, ULB helps student entrepreneurs launch startups, including with its StartLab

ULB spin-offs have been launched in a variety of industries:
