Enterprise / Institute Foundation


XperiLAB.be® is the pilot project of the Enterprise / Institute Foundation, a public utility foundation created on the initiative of the Solvay company and the Institute of Natural Sciences. It brings together players in science education, the scientific world and industry to raise awareness of technology, science and research among citizens, and in particular young people.

The Foundation's aim is to promote a positive image of science and to encourage young people to consider scientific and technological studies and careers in the context of sustainable development.

To this end, the Foundation supports the activities of the Institute of Natural Sciences, one of the federal vectors for the dissemination of science.

The Foundation is open to other scientific projects and initiatives, with new partners from the business world, as long as they are centred on the Institute of Natural Sciences.
