We are an Urban Engaged University
We are Vrije Universiteit Brussel. For more than 50 years, we have been committed to providing answers to the challenges of tomorrow. How do we achieve this? Through qualitative research, customised education and a strong social drive. We anchor our work in Brussels and Europe and work according to the existing principles of the Enlightenment: critical thinking, free enquiry and humanism. And that's our way of making the world a better place. #TheWorldNeedsYou
