Where do you recognise yourself in?
As the largest university of applied sciences in West Flanders, VIVES provides higher education and practice-oriented research. With our research we want to ensure that our education remains of high quality and in line with current professional practice. Through our research we also want to contribute to innovations and have a regional, national and international impact on social development.
Research is to see what everybody else has seen and to think what nobody else has thought -Albert Szent-Györgyi
How VIVES helps you
Our society is constantly evolving. It is therefore important to be able to detect wishes and needs at close quarters. This is often only possible through good interaction and cooperation between different stakeholders, because innovation occurs at crossroads. That's what we at VIVES are convinced of.
VIVES has several labs that are engaged in practical scientific research within current themes. A typical feature of these labs is that they are easily accessible.
