Organization
The ULB is a Belgium multicultural institution which has 7 faculties and a range of schools and institutes and is, at the same time, a comprehensive university providing academic tuition in all disciplines and study cycles. As a private university, which is recognised and subsidised by the Belgian authorities, the ULB receives government funding today to the tune of 60% of its overall budget.
Founded on the principle of free-thinking analysis which advocates independent reasoning and the rejection of dogma in all its forms, the ULB has remained true to its original ideals.
The research team in Health Economics is integrated in the Université Libre de Bruxelles, and more specifically in the Health Economics Department of the Erasme Hospital (teaching hospital of ULB) and of the « Institut de Biologie Clinique » which are part of the University.
