IEE-ULB research projects

IEE-ULB research projects are carried out by research centres, units and by European and international research networks, in association with our ULB partner faculties.

IEE-ULB research is organised by projects. Some of them are organised and managed internally, within the institute. However, the IEE-ULB also takes part in other European and international projects.
