Find out all about our international network for the organisation/spread of higher education in French-speaking Belgium
Wallonie-Bruxelles Campus can rely on a large international network to ensure it assists foreign students and pursues its goals in the best possible way. It comprises:
- General Representatives:based abroad, who can ensure the diplomatic representation of French-speaking Belgium. Their mission is to spread knowledge and awareness, in their country, of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation in all its aspects, as well as to help those from Wallonia and Brussels to make the contact they need to succeed in their international projects.
- Academic and Cultural Liaison Officers: they are involved in the promotion of Wallonie-Bruxelles Campus (fairs, official missions, etc.) as well as in supervisory activities. In other words, they provide information about opportunities for academic collaborations between their host countries and French-speaking Belgium, they prepare publications about higher education in their countries, etc. Their remit also include assisting foreign students wishing to study in Belgium and providing advice to institutions wishing to establish an exchange with a French-speaking Belgian institution.
- Scientific Liaison Officers: based abroad, their goal is to promote and facilitate collaboration between Belgian and foreign researchers and innovators. However, they are also tasked with jointly pursuing research projects with regional, national, European or international fund donors and with assisting the submission of documentation for existing sources of finance with foreign partners. Finally, they are also charged with promoting and activating research mobility programmes (grants of excellence and specialisation grants in particular).
- Economic and commercial advisors (CEC): as economic specialists, the CEC are responsible for information, supervision and advice on this topic. The CECs also have a broader mission, however: the international representation of French-speaking Belgium. They can therefore be contacted for any information you may need on the possibility of completing a study stay or carrying out research in the Wallonia-Brussels Federation.
