The research landscape

11 transdisciplinary research institutes form the University of Namur landscape.  Research activities lean on state-of-the-art scientific equipment grouped in 9 technology platforms.  Researchers work on inter- and transdisciplinary fundamental and applied research projects.

Ethical aspects affect research as a whole.  In 2018, the UNamur created the ethics committees, commission and council, liked to all disciplines (animal, medical and social sciences experimentation and research integrity).

NARCThe NARC (NAmur Research College) completes the landscape and follows a double objective: to offer an optimal environment to young outstanding researchers and ensure the visibility of outstanding research.

The Executive Board defines the University research strategy with the guidance of the Research Council.

Excellence in research logoThe UNamur aims at excellence and maintains the necessary balance between fundamental and applied research.  It is cautious about PhD training and researchers’ mobility.  The Euraxess cell is in charge of implementing the European Researcher Charter.
