Deloitte Legal assisted SOPARTEC (UCLouvain) in the creation of VIVES Inter-University Fund, a new EUR 32 Million investment fund that includes several important private equity players in Belgium. The fund aims to accelerate research towards the benefit of society.

UCLouvain previously launched the funds VIVES I in 2004 and VIVES II 2011 (also set up with the assistance of Benoît Feron), which generated 27 investments and a cumulated funding of EUR 400 Million. The new VIVES Inter-University Fund will offer a unique ecosystem with incubators and university hospitals, to provide start-ups with a powerful cross-border innovation network.

Deloitte Legal's team comprised Benoît Feron and Alexandre Pasdermadjian from the Corporate and M&A practice, supported by Eric Von Frenckell from the Tax Advisory team.
