Forward-thinking valorisation of knowledge, with sustainable solutions for humans and the world

UAntwerp develops knowledge and expertise in partnership with government entities, private partners and citizens, with a focus on applications, either with or without a profit motive. It actively seeks possibilities for valorising knowledge in a sustainable and societally valuable manner. 

The university encourages enterprise and an entrepreneurial spirit amongst its students and staff. Attention to structural, forward-thinking solutions is essential in this regard. Where possible, our university also derives opportunities for further research and teaching from these valorisation efforts, without compromising its scientific independence.
