The Biopark Charleroi Brussels South

Clarisse Faria-Fortecoëf

In 2013, this biotechnology excellence cluster got four new public-private partnerships (PPP).

The Biopark Charleroi Brussels South located within Gosselies Aéropole, not far from Charleroi-Brussels South Airport, is an university campus as well as a technological and industrial campus. It
incorporates technological platforms, businesses, bodies for the promotion of research, and a biotechnology training centre, as well as two universities, the Université de Mons and the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB). 

Among the nine new projects approved in 2013, teams and researchers at the ULB helped to get four private- public partnerships (PPP). Backed by the Region of Wallonia, the PPPs involve a 2-year privileged partnership between university research teams and industrial partners with the aim of promoting the development and exploitation of scientific innovations.

The four new PPPs are the following:
