The Philippe Wiener - Maurice Anspach Foundation is a Belgian public interest organisation, whose aim is to help foster academic exchanges between the Université libre de Bruxelles and the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge.
It enables graduates and researchers from the ULB to access the leading research centres of the two British universities and gives graduates and researchers from Oxford and Cambridge Universities the opportunity to work at the ULB. It also supports collaborative research projects.
To help promote the interactions between the three universities, the Foundation organises conferences and encourages contacts between academics by funding short-term visits.
In 2015 the Foundation turned fifty. For over half a century it has proven to be a powerful catalyst of cooperation between the Université libre de Bruxelles and the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford and helped launched the careers of over 500 Alumni in academia, public service, and the private sector. Our ambition is to use this exceptional pool of wisdom, talent and goodwill for the benefit of future generations of Fellows, in order to help them achieve their goals, just like theirs were fulfilled.
