The research landscape

NARCThe NARC (NAmur Research College) complements this landscape by following a double goal: to offer an optimal research environment for young researchers and to ensure the visibility of outstanding researchers inside and outside the UNamur.


The Board of Directors, with the guidance of the Research Council, defines the UNamur research strategy.  

Excellence in research logoThe UNamur aims at excellence and maintains the appropriate balance between fundamental and applied research.  Special attention is given to the training of Ph.D. students and to researchers’ mobility, for they are the key links of the university network.  The Euraxess unit is in charge of implementing the rules of the European Charter for researchers.
