Research Translation and Intercultural Transfer, Leuven
This research group focuses on translation as a vector of intercultural transfer: interlingual and intralingual as well as intersemiotic forms of translation are addressed. Transfer movements occur within and between national, regional and continental cultures. The proposed research is not limited as regards time or space but addresses , instead, a comprehensive range of ...
The Movement Control & Neuroplasticity Research Group consists of the following two reseach units, each with their own research focus:
1) The primary focus of Motor Control Laboratory is to understand the principles underlying control of human movement with special emphasis on coordination and cognitively demanding motor tasks in association with sensory processing. Furthermore, we have developed a long-standing interest in skill ...

Robotics & Multibody Mechanics Research Group Vrije Universiteit Brussel
The main research topics of the Robotics & Multibody Mechanics (R&MM) research HRI (cHRI). Core technology is the design and control of variable impedance adaptability. Most of the prototypes build in the lab are designed and actuators for embodied intelligence principles as safety, energy efficiency and group can be divided into physical human-robot interaction (pHRI) and cognitive constructed in house. Their most well known robots ...
Brussels Institute for Applied Linguistics Vrije Universiteit Brussel
BIAL (Brussels Institute for Applied Linguistics) is a research group within the Applied Linguistics Department of the VUB that conducts applied linguistic research with a focus on transculturalism. We define transculturalism as a form of cultural hybridity which emerges when different cultural elements interact and eventually integrate with each other. Since Brussels is a natural melting pot of cultures, the emphasis on transculturalism is ...

The aim of the Soft Matter, Rheology and Technology (SMaRT) division is to foster and conduct research on soft matter and the rheology of complex fluids on a fundamental level as well as their application to technical processes. Such complex fluids span a wide range of materials, including polymer solutions, melts and blends, emulsions, colloidal dispersions, surfactant solutions, etc.
A characteristic feature of such complex fluids and ...
