Search Applied research is one of the missions assigned to HE and our Board of Directors is determined to develop this sector. HE research is, in fact, the main source of improvement and enrichment of current professional practices. To this end, the management of the UDR (Research Unit), which is hierarchically subordinate to the Presidency Department, is in constant contact with all the directorates and sits on the Management Committee. The UDR acts mainly as a facilitator to develop applied research projects both within the categories and transversally in multidisciplinary projects internally. It is also surrounded by external collaborators. The projects are thus proposed by the UDR to categories and sections, often following external calls for tenders, but also come from the categories themselves and are structured within the UDR. It is therefore a support structure serving the community. [-]

Foundation In 1878, under Rector Namèche, the Institute of Agronomy was established within the Faculty of Science following upon the initiative of a group of Catholic landowners who put together the necessary funds on behalf of the university. This initiative has to be seen against the background of the major agricultural crisis which hit Belgium and the rest of Europe as a result of the massive grain imports from Russia and America and which put pressure on Belgian agriculture to develop new methods of production. The agricultural sciences were called upon to help in this development. Important landowners and farmers looked to the University of Leuven to contribute the necessary resources. The bishops were in favour of the plan because they did not trust the state-run Institute of Agricultural Sciences at Gembloux, and they hoped that the agricultural engineers who would be trained at the Catholic University would play a part in protecting the Belgian farmers from liberal influence and at the same time keep this traditional bulwark of Belgian Catholicism intact. International Orientation The Faculty of Bioscience Engineering does not limit its activities to the Belgian borders, it has a large international network for student-exchanges, for example in the Erasmus+ Programme. What's more, the Faculty is a member of ICA, IROICA, and AgriNatura and hosts the International Banana and Plantain Collection of Bioversity International, the international student association IAAS and ISHS. The Faculty also had active agreements with IITA and Bioversity International, as well as contacts with the other CGIAR centers. Professors teaching at the Faculty of Bioscience Engineering are all involved in international research projects funded by Horizon2020, ERC and many other international funding agencies.

We want to train our students to be safe, competent and independent osteopaths. We, therefore, offer modern courses that meet the highest possible academic standards. We set great store by a good scientific foundation (Evidence-Based Practice - EBP). Our students are expected always to act on the basis of a broad scientific knowledge. Quality. Innovation. Appreciation. Respect. That is what we at the IAO® stand for. Quality: We are continually looking for ways to make our … [+] courses even better. Today's students play a major role in this: it is partly through their feedback that we can improve the quality of our services. Innovation: The IAO® keeps abreast of the latest developments (Evidence-Based Practice). For years we have been implementing "blended learning" in our curriculum. This means that our teaching method consists of a combination of classic instruction and e-learning. In addition, we continue to look for ways to make the Evidence-Based Practice model even more visible in our courses. Appreciation: Much appreciation for the discipline of osteopathy, but also for the efforts of our staff, teachers, and students. Respect: Not only respect for our students, our teachers, our assistants, and staff, but also for the patients. The relationship between the osteopath and his/her patient is based on mutual respect. Osteopathic profession The IAO® continues to work towards increasing the academic nature of the osteopathic profession and the recognition of the profession of osteopathy in all countries where we organize training. Collaboration with the existing medical professions is vitally important in this regard. Social purpose In addition to our osteopathy courses, we also try and fulfill a social purpose. In our clinics in Ghent and Antwerp (Belgium), we give everyone the chance to enjoy the benefits of an osteopathic treatment. In the clinics, patients can be treated free of charge by our final-year students, of course always under the supervision of a qualified osteopath. [-]
