As a university in Brussels, VUB strives to make its knowledge available to its surroundings, while at the same time realising that the city is a source of inspiration and an ideal research environment.
Research in, by, and for Brussels - a cradle of participatory research
Together with the Erasmus University College Brussels the VUB forms the University Association Brussels. Through it we share science with the general public. Our website Wtnschp.be gets straight to the point: the most important and enjoyable part of science!
Science for and by citizens.
Citizen science, simply put, is the participation of citizens in scientific research. This can be achieved in many different ways and at different stages of a research project.
Think tank POINcaré
The POINcaré think tank is a loose-knit group of researchers who work on very different things every day. Gradually they started thinking about two projects: the first about the idea of a humane city, the second about the social consequences of robotisation.
