Vision and mission

Moving people and society

At the Faculty of Physical Education and Physiotherapy (LK), we promote the individual and  societal importance of movement, health, well-being, rehabilitation and sport in all its facets, with an eye for inclusion and talent. 

Our standard and advanced educational programmes are grounded in active and science-based knowledge development, to mould professionals with a critical eye, each with their own expertise. The principles of free research form the basis for this knowledge development. 

We co-create and share knowledge with various partners, sectors and disciplines, and this within Brussels and (far) beyond.  

This is how we realise impact on people and society.
