Who are we ?

Research is essential ! Thanks to research, companies can innovate, implement new technologies and meet the needs of users, now and in the future. Research and knowledge enrich our society and contribute to making socio-economic development sustainable in our regions.

Based of this observation, 20 years ago, the research support and promotion office was created: SynHERA. It is the only structure which represents applied research within French-speaking Universities and associated Research Centres from Belgium. 


From its two offices, in Brussels and Namur, the SynHERA team works with different stakeholders on a daily basis :

Les enseignants-chercheurs des Hautes Écoles et Centres de Recherche associés de la Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles. Plus de 1.000 chercheurs issus des 7 départements : agronomique, arts appliqués, économique, paramédical, pédagogique, social et technique 

Les entreprises belges ou internationales, à finalité sociale ou économique 

Les différents acteurs du réseau de l'innovation
