The University of Antwerp undertakes scientific research which is creative and innovative, and strives for international excellence. The University stimulates both basic and applied research and their valorisation.

Of course, the University of Antwerp wants to be the best at everything. But we are also realistic: excelling in every single research field is simply not possible. Instead, we have chosen to focus on disciplines in which we have long been world leaders. These are the University of Antwerp's nine Key Research Domains. We have also defined three Emerging Research Domains: fields which are expected to become increasingly important in the coming years.

“Ah, that's a question for the University of Antwerp!” This is the reaction we want to get all over the world.
