U-Map in Flemish higher education


In 2010, the Flemish Ministry of Education, together with the Dutch Ministry of Education and Science commissioned a project to the CHERPA consortium to generate U-Map profiles for all Flemish and Dutch higher education institutions. INCENTIM, University of Leuven organizes the activities for the Flemish institutions.

All Flemish higher education institutions will be given the opportunity to participate and have their own U-Map activity profile generated.
