Allied Academies conferences proudly present world class medical events in the beautiful country of Belgium which is on the North Sea coast in the Benelux, situated at the crossroads of Western Europe and is a member of the long-standing international Benelux community. Belgium is one of the smallest and most densely populated European countries. Even though Belgium is a small country in size, it plays large in international scenes and consistently ranks among the top places to live in the world. The multicultural makeup gives its capital Brussels an edgy vibe with an array of global services and facilities on offer to ease in even the newest expat. Belgium is a heterogeneous country straddling the border between the Romance and Germanic language families of western Europe. Belgian universities and the quality of life in Belgium attract many foreign students and researchers to the Belgian scientific institutions with its high scientific standard. Science has traditionally been linked to education and the public sector in Belgium. But for some time now, industry has also been heavily involved in scientific research, focusing on space travel, biochemistry, medicine, pharmaceuticals and IT.
Belgium is a federal
state. As such, it is mainly the communities and regions that are responsible
for scientific research, although the federal level does have some powers in
this domain too. The areas where Belgian research has focused on are medicine,
biochemistry, statistics (Quetelet) and astronomy in which the researchers have
received prestigious international scientific prizes for their work in these areas.
Belgium offers many top attractions in spades. It’s a sizable international
community and the home of the European Union (EU), a short trip to a number of
international capitals, and has three official languages (French, Dutch and
German). Beyond that, it’s also famous for fries, Tintin, chocolate, and beer. It
has a high life standard and ranks among the top 10 in several indicators of
the OECD’s Better Life Index, with the average household wealth above the OECD
The healthcare’s in Belgium are in excellent standard. High quality medical care is widely available, enhanced by large university hospitals and also considered cheaper than the US, and shorter waiting times means Belgium is becoming a hotspot for medical tourism from surrounding countries. The major attraction for tourists is Bruges, with its perfectly preserved medieval streets rimming tranquil canals that lure flocks of travellers each year. But plenty of other towns in the country - particularly Ghent and Mechelen - retain excellent architectural examples from the Middle Ages as well. This small nation has been right at the forefront of Europe's history, with many of the continent's most important events played out across its countryside. The healthcare system in Belgium is one of the best in Europe and it is divided into state and private sectors, with fees payable in both. Both federal and regional governments have responsibility for healthcare in Belgium. The state system is funded by mandatory health insurance which allows residents to access subsidized services such as doctors, hospital care, dental care, maternity costs, and prescriptions.
