Research areas

The Research Centre of FTU develops research, analysis and training on work, innovation and society, within regional, national or European programmes. It takes part in international research networks and fosters an pluridisciplinary approach. From 1 September 2016, the activities of the Research Centre of FTU in Namur are progressively transferred to the University of Louvain-la-Neuve (UCL), in the framework of a new Chair Labour-University, taking over the existing Chair Max Bastin. Reasearch projects will be continued and developed in this new institutional context.
