Formation & Certification
Buildings are responsible for 40% of the energy consumption in industrialized countries. Research activities are necessary both at building design and operation levels and have to target a better integration of renewables.
Research center associated with the Haute Ecole de la Province de Liège
The Belgian Building Research Institute (BBRI) was founded in 1960 at the impetus of the National Federation of Belgian Building Contractors in application of the "De Groote" decree–law of 1947.

Materials engineering, characterization, synthesis and recycling (4 MAT) - Recycling and environment - ULB (ULB-4MAT)
Based in the Ecole Polytechnique de Bruxelles, at the ULB, Service 4MAT works with inorganic materials throughout their entire life cycle, from synthesis to processing to optimal end-of-life management, and including optimization of their (micro)structures for a given application.
Research activities focus on modeling materials at the nanometer scale.
The UMONS Research Institute for Energy originates from the Energy Research Centre of the Faculty of Engineering, which was established in 2005. It now organises research activities in the field of energy at UMONS.
