Who are we?

Created in 2003, the LiEU Network, supported by the Walloon Region, brings together the Knowledge Transfer Offices (KTO) of the 6 French-speaking universities.

These promote and facilitate relations between the scientific community, businesses, organizations and public authorities.

The experts of the KTO members of the LiEU Network are located in the universities, close to the scientific expertise in order to:

  • foster a close link with research units
  • facilitate the setting up of collaborative research projects and the identification of skills or equipment
  • detecting research results that can be exploited on the market and thus participate in regional development.

Our missions

Inform / Raise awareness

Raising awareness among researchers about calls for projects, intellectual property and the transfer of research results.



Research-business events organized at inter-university level on targeted themes.

Detect / Promote

Project monitoring and detection of valuable research results; identification of business innovation needs.
