From the outset, the objectives pursued by the development of Louvain-la-Neuve Science Park were to develop cooperation between industry and the University of Louvain (UCLouvain) and to contribute to regional economic development. Particular emphasis is placed on environmental-friendliness, as well as the quality of the premises and their surroundings.

The main areas of activity are:

  • Life sciences
  • Fine chemistry
  • Information technologies
  • Engineering

Louvain-la-Neuve Science Park is now home to more than 135 innovative companies and their 4,500 employees, one business incubator and five business centres.
