With weKONEKT.brussels the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) and our Brussels partners take their responsibility for the city and community and contribute to the development of a free, connected and resilient urban community.

The universities offer students opportunities to develop into critical global citizens and social leaders of the future. Hereby using Brussels as a lecture hall and a workplace, connecting the students with Brussels stakeholders and the professional field. They strengthen the Brussels community by organizing education with, in and for Brussels. Researchers use their expertise to make Brussels stronger by providing answer to metropolitan, social challenges. Efforts made and supported by weKONEKT.brussels are varied and include education, sports, culture, science, art, law and more.
