Largest University in Belgium, KU Leuven, Selects Symplectic Elements
Our portfolio company Symplectic today announce that KU Leuven, the largest university in Belgium, have selected Symplectic Elements as their output management system.
This renowned university now becomes Symplectic’s first European institutional client outside the UK.
Founded in 1425 and based a short distance from Brussels, KU Leuven is one of the oldest and most highly-regarded universities in Europe. With a rich history of software innovation, it was recently ranked #1 in the 2016 Times Higher Education list of most innovative European institutions, and prides itself on excellent quality of interdisciplinary research.
The Elements system will become the hub of KU Leuven’s output management, populating their DSpace institutional repository (LIRIAS), as well as providing a more automated (and thus researcher-friendly) workflow, support for their Open Access engagement, future ORCID integration, and more.
This marks the first Symplectic partnership with a mainland Europe research institution, and paves the way for an exciting future working with other institutions across the continent. We look forward to working with the project team at KU Leuven to get Elements up and running.
