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 growth by connecting them with a complete innovation ecosystem, fostering collaborations between business and academia and/or research centers, and stimulating local networking with other companies.
Louvain-la-Neuve Science Park is up to this date the first, widest, and most active science park in Wallonia. Our role is to provide a perfect environment and connections that maximize the opportunities of success of innovative companies.
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 250 companies and 6,200 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 get 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 this dynamic urban center also provides numerous personal benefits : child care, museums, conference center, theater, cinema, shopping center and restaurants, golf, lake, forest of Lauzelle...all in a pedestrian-oriented 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 !
