Créé en 1985, au cœur de la crise de la sidérurgie qui frappait de plein fouet le bassin liégeois, Meusinvest est une société anonyme ayant pour mission de contribuer à la création et au développement des entreprises en province de Liège.
Comment ? En assurant, à long terme, le financement de projets d’entreprises. Ce qui donne en chiffres, 260 sociétés en portefeuille, près de 270 millions d’euros mobilisés pour le soutien à l’activité des PME de la province et pas loin de 5.000 emplois consolidés.
C’est cette expertise qui conduit aujourd’hui Meusinvest à également être impliqué dans des projets d’intérêt plus régional comme le Pôle Image de Liège; le projet Giga mené en collaboration avec l’université; le WSL (Wallonia Space Logistics), l’incubateur destiné aux secteurs spatial, aéronautique et aux sciences de l’ingénieur; WBC (Wallonia Biotech Coaching), l’incubateur dont l’objectif est de stimuler la création et le développement de sociétés biotechnologiques; Immoval (la société immobilière du Val Saint-Lambert) ou encore Liege Airport Business Park.
ULg, a research university
The University of Liege devotes more than half of its annual budget to high-level research, recognized throughout the world. Its activities extend from fundamental to applied research. More than 2000 people- lecturer/researchers, scientists and technicians- are involved in its research programmes. The moderate size of the University encourages inter-disciplinary research and, more generally, contacts between scientists from various disciplines. There exist numerous partnerships with the industrial sector and the University plays an active role in enhancing the creation of spin-off companies and guiding their development.
… open to all
In terms of research, the University of Liege offers several possibilities for companies or organisations from both the public and private sectors who wish to set up partnerships or subcontract research tasks. ULg has more than 75,000 graduates around the world.
The « Institut Montefiore » is the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of the University of Liège. It was founded in 1883 as one of the first schools of electrical engineering in the world. Its mission is to provide high quality education at the undergraduate and graduate levels and to be a leading research center in selected fields of electrical engineering, computer science, and biomedical engineering.
WSL is an incubator created in 1999. It is focused on technologic start-up firms whose technologies are most of the time the result of spatial R&D projects. The incubator’s mission is to support young entrepreneurs coming mainly from Walloon universities in creating their company, to help to get it going and to accompany the project during its first years of growth so as to contribute to increase the number of high tech firms in Wallonia.
WSL is considered a pioneering organisation in Europe, as it was at its creation the first ‘space related’ incubator in Europe.
The incubator was created in the form of a private limited company with a cleared capital of €7.5 million. In 2006, given the continual growth of its overwhelming success, the Walloon Region increased funding by €2.5 million. Its main stockholder, the Walloon Region, is associated with Spinventure, a venture capital fund created by the University of Liege and a public institutional fund (Meusinvest).
WSL’s objective is to solicit and anchor new high-tech enterprises in Wallonia.
WSL is co-founder of ESINET (European Network of Space Incubators) and leader of the NAVOBS project, a support measure to boost the business prospects of GMES and telecom satellites through focused and innovative RTD work involving SMEs.
At the end of 2005, the NBIA (the American National Business Incubation Association) chose WSL to be the first reference incubator outside the United States. It received the « Best Incubator in Europe » award in 2007 from the Science Alliance. Through this new program, NBIA recognizes incubators that are especially capable at helping non-domestic companies enter the incubator’s domestic market. 27 start ups launched up to now with more than 160 jobs created and €15M turnover.
