What is a « Science Park » ?
Unlike traditional Business Parks, a Science Park primarily hosts innovative companies (minimum 80%). Besides offering an ideal location, the Science Park supports its tenants in their long-term growth by : (1) connecting them with a complete innovation ecosystem, (2) fostering business / academia / research centers collaborations, and (3) stimulating local networking with other companies and the university.
Louvain-la-Neuve Science Park is presently the first, widest, and most active science park in Wallonia. By providing a perfect environment and the right connections to our innovative resident companies, we maximize their opportunities for business and development.
Regional economic growth relies on the prosperity of companies that make a difference, those invested in research and innovation. Conscious of the challenges of such companies in their march towards progress, Louvain-la-Neuve Science Park is the partner that offers them a lot more than a land or infrastructure. We offer them opportunities of long-term growth and international development.
Located thirty kilometers away from Brussels, capital of Europe, our 231 hectares are divided in four zones : Einstein, Fleming, Athena and Monnet. We are home to over 275 companies and 6,292 jobs in sectors such as life sciences, engineering, fine chemicals, information and communication technology, and green technologies.
We foster university-business relations. Our Service being an integral part of the University of Louvain (UCL) since its settlement in Louvain-la-Neuve in 1971, our tenants have immediate access to the university’s expertise, research facilities, and the entire Louvain Innovation Network ecosystem.
The Science Park is only one kilometer away from the city and the university. Proximity with our dynamic urban center brings along numerous personal benefits : child care, museums, conference center, theater, cinema, shopping center and restaurants, golf, lake, forest of Lauzelle...all in a pedestrian-only area.
From start-up to multinational, on the lookout for infrastructure, land, or office space, Louvain-la-Neuve Science Park welcomes all innovative companies. Each application file is analyzed by our Service to check concordance with a series of criteria enlisted in our Quality Charter. Contact us to find more about it !
