A new Brussels city and university district

Under the joint project of VUB and ULB called, the abandoned gendarmerie quarters at the Generaal Jacqueslaan and the Kroonlaan will be transformed into a new, lively district with room for both university services and housing for families and students. The ambition of the project is to bring people, city and knowledge together. An innovative inter-university cluster for sustainable development research, knowledge dissemination, entrepreneurship and innovation will be established. This cluster will consist of a joint ULB-VUB incubator, a specific structure for hosting and coaching young student entrepreneurs and a joint ULB-VUB FabLab.
