    They will soon offer 20 joint doctorates as part of a strategic partnership, but that’s not all KU Leuven and the University of Edinburgh have planned. We asked Rector Luc Sels for the details. “If we want to stay part of the international top, we have to be willing to invest now.”

    Researchers at KU Leuven and imec have successfully developed a new technique to insulate microchips. The technique uses metal-organic frameworks, a new type of materials consisting of structured nanopores. In the long term, this method can be used for the development of even smaller and more powerful chips that consume less energy. The team has received an ERC Proof of Concept grant to further their research.

    The "Belgian Beer. Tested and Tasted", authored by Miguel Roncoroni and Kevin Verstrepen is unique: it reports on an amazing nr of Belgian beers, not just tasting, but from a scientific perspective. Dr. Verstrepen is a scientist at the KU Leuven, and is Science Director at the VIB (Institute of Biotechnology). He studied bioengineering in Leuven and worked at MIT and Harvard for several years before coming back to Leuven.

    The book is published by Lannoo and can also be obtained on e.g. Amazon
