On the occasion of the opening ceremony of the 27th edition of the Entretiens du Centre Jacques Cartier, on Sunday October 5, 2014, the University of Quebec at Montreal (UQAM) bestowed an Honorary Doctorate on Bernard RENTIER, the ULg’s outgoing Rector.

This title honours a brilliant career in the field of virology and immunology, but it equally rewards Bernard Rentier’s commitment to Open Access.

On September 17 the University of Liège’s Board of Directors decided to strengthen the mandate by which depositing on ORBi is compulsory.

Not only has the procedure for depositing references and documents been consolidated, but so has that concerning the evaluation of dossiers, and in particular publication lists, for any application for a job appointment, promotion or the attribution of credit. In addition it was decided that BICTEL/e, the ULg thesis repository, will very soon be integrated into ORBi.


ORBi (Open Repository and Bibliography)

In may 2007, the ULg's Administrative Board (joined in June 2007 by the FUSAGx) decided to create an institutional repository and defined a strong institutional self-archiving policy to increase the visibility, accessibility and impact of the University's publications (Board's decision).

This decision led to the official launch, in November 2008, of the ORBi platform including both the Academic Bibliography and the Institutional Repository of the Wallonia-Europe University Academy.
