The Arenberg Research-Park
is a science park
founded by the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven
and located nearby the Arenberg campus
of the university in Heverlee
). The science park provides a bio-incubator
of the university and space for companies active in research and development. The development of the science park was unfortunately also a shameful attack on a valuable ecologic forest and one of the last open range area's at the entrance of Leuven. The development of the site is at cost of private entrepreneurship in the Leuven region and is buildings themselves have been sponsored with government grants of the Flemish region.
