Work starts on new Leuven science park

Work has started on construction of the University of Leuven’s new Arenberg science park with the first phase scheduled for completion by the end of next year, De Standaard newspaper reports.

The park will offer 120,000 square meters of business space spread over four building clusters. A bio-incubator with specialized laboratories is included in the project and is supported by the Flemish Institute for Biotechnology and the agricultural organization Aveve.

Arenberg is intended for spin-off companies from the university as well as for Flemish and overseas businesses looking for a location close to the university’s research centers and IMEC, the internationally renowned microelectronics research organization. It is also close to Termunckveld, where a further 36 hectares is available for future development.
