The Confucius Institute at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel is primarily research-oriented, especially prominent in the humanities and economic & social sciences. It focuses on Chinese language teaching at the academic and professional level, academic research in education, political sciences, social sciences, diplomacy, knowledge transfer, and the interplay between European and Chinese cultures. The institute complements and capitalizes on the expertise of VUB professors and students with an interest in contemporary China. The Institute will support cooperation between universities, industry and government. It has the ambition to do government policy related studies through academic research and consulting services, taking into account the Chinese and European/Belgian contexts. The Confucius Institute at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel will address a large variety of societal actors. Special focus will be on EU-officers, representatives from international organisations and headquarters in Brussels, diplomats, and representatives from member states, NGOs, and others.

The Confucius Institute at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel is a collaboration between Renmin University of China, Sichuan University and VUB.
