Its pluralist ambition, its openness to political, social, technological and industrial change, its active participation in international and European research programmes, and the mobility of its students and researchers are values which the University of Liège promotes and which contribute towards its unique identity.
The University of Liège's development in recent years has involved an increasing number of stakeholders from the scientific, economic, political and cultural spheres. Firstly, the graduates of the University of Liège, the women and men who live in the Liège region or are based elsewhere in Belgium or abroad, but who share their attachment to Liège and its University.
In practical terms, the University of Liège's ability to have a real impact upon its region and the world is conditional upon new sources of funding from sponsorship. To meet future challenges, the University will need to raise several millions of euros to finance research, create Chairs, scholarships and infrastructures, and to create an endowment fund enabling it to sustain its activities in the long term.
Although this new challenge is significant, the loyalty of graduates and companies to the University of Liège, its teaching staff and researchers, leads us to hope that it is possible.
