LIEU is the network of Technology Transfer Offices of the French-speaking Universities of Belgium. It gathers 9 universities and 13 technical schools, which represent approximately 10.000 researchers. The network promotes the exchange of good practices between members, strives to provide a unified approach to technology transfer throughout the various institutions, and ensures the promotion of the competences of research laboratories. LIEU also belongs to the French CURIE network and has ties with a similar association in Quebec (BLEU). Through the European project MIRVAL, supported by the FSE and the Walloon Region, LIEU is implementing a total quality process, which includes a complete inventory of competences available in research laboratories in Belgium.
