UCLouvain traces its origins back to 1425 and was one of the rare universities at that time to offer a complete range of academic faculties. The university prioritises universal access to high-quality education and a research environment conducive to scientific creativity. Innovation is the governing principle of activities, underpinned by the values of openness to others and to differences, solidarity, freedom and respect. UCLouvain is headquartered in the purpose-designed, pedestrianised town of Louvain-la-Neuve just south of Brussels, and now has six other sites in the capital and Wallonia (including Mons). It is Belgium’s most international university (ranked 47th in the world, THE 2022), and is the leading university in French-speaking Belgium (QS 2021-22).
The Centre Montesquieu d'études de l'action publique (in collaboration with the Law faculty) specialises in public policy and public administration within the Institute of Political Science Louvain-Europe (French acronym: ISPOLE). Areas of research excellence include: politico-administrative relations; budgetary and financial management; organisational change (and digitisation); collaborative and local governance; and policy analysis and evaluation (particularly in the fields of environmental policy, education and social policies, public health, energy, telecommunications, and justice). Experts from the Centre also provide executive training to public officials through several inter-university certificates.
