The Faculteit Wetenschappen en Bio-ingenieurswetenschappen, Vakgroep

family created in 1970 the International Solvay Institutes in association
with the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) and the Vrije Universiteit
Brussel (VUB). As a token of the Institutes’ dedication for scientific
research, physicists and chemists have joined forces with historians and
archivists to launch the Solvay Science Project, a multilingual virtual
