The Research Council
Universities are legally bound - by decree - since 1978 to set up a Research Council. The attributions of the Research Council are also determined by decree.
At the ULB, the Research Council was created in October 1978. The Research Council is competent for advising the Authorities in all matters related to the research policy of the ULB. In particular the Research Council is competent for advising the Authorities and the Faculties' Deans for the attribution of institutional research funds to specific research projects.
