Cooperation agreements - UHasselt
UHasselt and UM Maastricht
The transnational University Limburg (tUL) is a unique partnership between the UHasselt and the University Maastricht (UM) and can be considered as one university with a home in two countries. Therefore, it is an extraordinary example of internationalization of higher education in Europe: for the first time, one university conglomerate organizes research and education on two campuses in different Member States. In the tUL, UHasselt and UM commit both resources and complementarity of mutual expertise to start new trainings and research lines.
The tUL is working on the expansion of top research and of knowledge centers on a number of areas, namely in Life Sciences and ICT. In a globalizing economy, where the factor knowledge is more central, top research and knowledge centers are important stimuli for economic development of the region. A region that has knowledge centers in the area of Life Sciences and ICT, is a region with attraction to new hope worthy and knowledge-oriented companies. With the establishment of a Life Sciences Incubator in Maastricht and Diepenbeek, the explicit cooperation with the Science Park (especially ICT) in Diepenbeek and the structural interaction with the regional business, the knowledge institute tUL is an important economic impuls for the Euregion.
The tUL contributes to a broadening and deepening of the supply of higher education in the region and thus to an increase of the participation council in the universitary education in the Euregion.
