General presentation and institutional changes in 2016

From 1992 to 2016, the Research Centre of the Fondation Travail-Université (FTU) in Namur developed research, analysis and intervention on innovation, work and society, through research projects granted by Belgian or European programmes. The main research areas were: innovation and changes in work and social relations; generations and work; gender and work; exlusion and inclusion in the information society; technoloy and society.

From 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. The new projects will be developed in this new institutional framework, and the current research team moves to the new structure. The Chair is integrated in the Interdisciplinary Research Centre on Work, State and Society (CIRTES). The Namur offices are closed and the new offices are located in Louvain-la-Neuve.

The non-profit association Fondation Travail-Université (FTU) continues its activities of support services for the assocative sector. FTU was initially established in 1967 in order to build up a bridge between academic research and social organisations in the French speaking part of Belgium. Nowadays FTU is an independent and interdisciplinary institution, recognised by the French Community of Belgium as a service for lifelong education.
