    Complementary Information

    Above mentioned figures are based on an educated guess. Usually, contacts with the EC, EP, and other European legislations occur in an ad hoc way, by many people, both from administration and (especially) researchers, not allowing for proper calculations. There is not a single person appointed for advocacy purposes at the university.

    These figures do not include the people employed by LERU, the League of European Research Universities, of which KU Leuven is a member.
