Research infrastructures notably in oceanography and astronomy. A teaching platform in Central Africa: the scientific influence of ULiège extends internationally.
Collaborating with many scientists from around the world, the University of Liège has cutting-edge research structures abroad. These structures are open both to researchers and students.
The Central Africa Platform
Beyond research locations, the international influence of the University of Liège is also structured at the level of teaching, through platforms and initiatives abroad. This is notably the case in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where the University of Liège established its Central Africa Platform and the Kinshasa Management School.
The Platform focuses on the identification and study of problems characteristic of local zones also having an impact on cross-border zones in Central Africa.
Another initiative in the DRC is the creation of the Kinshasa Management School (KMS), a partnership between the University of Liège and the ISC-Kinshasa (Higher Institute of Commerce). Initially, these two institutions joined forces to organise a training programme in Management and Business Law, responding to a need for training in the DRC and in the sub-region.
