Five university chairs and study scholarships focusing on today's world
In a world that is in constant flux, education and training of young people are two vectors that will condition the quality of our future. University training should therefore anticipate not only studies but also exchanges, in order to prepare future generations for new challenges, and to help them understand the world of tomorrow. Against this backdrop, the InBev-Baillet Latour Fund aims to focus on university and post-university training by granting scholarships and financing chairs. Thus, since 2000, the Fund has supported the creation of six university chairs in Belgium, at different Flemish and French-speaking institutions. To this end, it preferably selects areas where other institutions are less active and/or specific needs arise, by prioritising those that promote opening up to the world. Many study scholarships have thus been granted in sectors as diverse as international relations, conservation-restoration of real estate, or research in brewing and malting sciences.

"Today, the declining number of students in the positive sciences (physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics and all related disciplines) in many European countries may be cause for concern. It is clear that the future planetary issues (climate change, energy, water management, fight against epidemics and poverty) will call for both scientific and technological solutions. Young people should be motivated to pursue activities in these promising sectors. They pave the way to more tolerance and respect towards each other, which is capital to ensure global harmony and solidarity.""The patronage of the InBev-Baillet Latour Fund is both vast and specific, and based on initiatives that encourage creative action and common values. This type of patronage therefore
participates in a higher form of solidarity that is also future-oriented." * A trained economist, Viscount Mark Eyskens is an eminent figure in the Belgian political landscape.
