    Goals / Remit

    UAntwerp is a publicly funded and fully accredited Belgian university. It is characterised by its high standards in education, internationally competitive research and entrepreneurial approach. UAntwerp was founded in 2003 after the merger of three smaller universities (RUCA, UFSIA and UIA). The university's roots go back to 1852.
    In 2020 it ranked 13th in the “Top 50 Universities Under 50 years”. The University has ca. 1.939 PhD students, 680 tenured professors, over 337 assistants and over 3566 tenured researcher and education staff members. It produces over 3600 peer-reviewed scientific publications per year. The European Commission has awarded the University the “HR Excellence in Research” quality label.
    UAntwerp has an excellent track record as to the participation in EU framework research and innovation programmes.

    Main EU files targeted

    As a university we follow mainly EU policies and initiatives in the field of education and research & technology: EU framework programmes for research and innovation, EU education programmes and horizontal issues such as data protection, ethics, animal testing, clinical trials, data management and storage.

    Individual researchers of research groups might however also be interested in/follow specific EU policies and initiatives as these might be directly or indirectly relevant for the scientific research they are carrying out. These policies and initiatives can be very diverse: health; IT; development cooperation; communication technology; environment; justice; economic & financial affairs; employment, social affairs, inclusion; agriculture; energy; climate; transport & mobility; maritime affairs; culture; etc.

    Above mentioned figures are based on an educated guess. Usually, contacts with the EU institutions occur in an ad hoc way, by many people, both from administration and researchers, not allowing for adequate calculations.
