A city like Brussels is an unforgettable experience in many ways. Therefore, with weKONEKT.brussels, VUB encourages students to discover the enormous wealth, in different ways.
Students move out of the classrooms and into the city. As part of university-wide training, they gain experience in Brussels-based non-profit organisations and assist them with academic skills.
On the one hand, a non-profit organisation with a question. On the other hand, a student looking for a master's thesis topic. In the middle: the science shop, which brings both parties into contact with each other.
Ten European universities, including VUB, share a mission: to build a new academic model in which an open and united Europe with respect for citizens and the environment is central. The means: collaborative research, increased student and faculty mobility, and shared innovations.
