Major institutional changes on 1 September 2016

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, succeeding the Chair Max Bastin. Our new offices are located 32, Rue de la lanterne magique, in Louvain-la-Neuve.

Patricia Vendramin becomes a tenure professor at UCL and a director of FOPES (Open faculty for economic and social policy) and Chair holder. In this new institutional context, Gérard Valenduc continues ongoing research on “Innovation and work”, and Périne Brotcorne on “Digital inclusion”, in collaboration with Dana Schurmans.

You can find our new addresses under the heading Contacts and a description of our new functions under the heading Research team.

The web site ftu-namur.org will remain online until 2018 at least. All publications remain downloadable, in English and French. They will be progressively integrated in the web page of the Chair on uclouvain.be.

The legal headquarter of the non-profit association FTU is transferred to 579, Chaussée de Haecht, in B-1030 Brussels. FTU continues its activities of lifelong education for associations, in the framework of its recognition by the Ministry of the French Community of Belgium.
