On March 30, the LiEU Network organized its “KTO Day” with all its members. This was the occasion to officially launch our MIRVALIS action plan, which aims to strengthen the impact of university research in society.
The day began with a plenary session in the morning during which the strategic axes and objectives of our action plan were detailed, as well as the important work carried out around the operationalization of the project and the way in which our support processes are articulated with the “referential of the offer of products and services” piloted by Wallonie Entreprendre. The Vice-Rectors for Research also expressed their support for the approach taken by the LiEU teams and for the work carried out in recent months in setting up MIRVALIS.
Finally, Baudouin Jambe recalled the support of SPW Research during the last 20 years and its accompaniment for the future years in the Valorisation of Research.
In the afternoon, the teams immersed themselves in a playful activity around the valorization professions in order to encourage connections between institutions and design tools dedicated to welcoming new members.
