The RISE (Research, Innovation, Support and Enterprise) department is responsible for managing university research and transferring the knowledge generated by research units, in particular by setting up and implementing administrative projects, identifying and protecting valuable research results, and supporting their maturation and commercialization.

RISE contributes to the development of research by assisting the authorities in the definition, implementation and evaluation of strategic research and innovation policy, and by supporting researchers in their research mission, particularly in terms of funding, training and mobility. To encourage business-research collaborations, RISE also strives to create a genuine exchange dynamic between researchers and socio-economic players, enabling them to make contact with potential partners, promote their skills and facilities, and generate ideas for research projects.


With RISE, the University of Liège intends to:

  • Support university research, in every field, and encourage its development potential to advance knowledge
  • Maximize the impact of this knowledge by transmitting it, stimulating exchanges and creating value for the University, society, the environment, and the socio-economic, associative and cultural worlds
  • Consolidate the institution's strategic positioning and active participation in the research and innovation ecosystem
  • Supporting researchers :
  1. in their university, fundamental and applied research activities
  2. in their careers, in terms of funding, training and mobility
  3. in the process of valorizing and transferring knowledge, to help bring innovation projects to fruition
