Robert Halleux

Background

Robert Halleux was born into a family of Liège metalworkers. After completing his secondary education he gained a degree in classical philology at the University of Liège in 1968.

After several sojourns abroad, Robert Halleux came back to the University of Liège, where he in 1982 created the History of Science and Technology Centre (C.H.S.T.). He was is a F.N.R.S. research director and the director of the C.H.S.T. The author of numerous books, he was appointed a member of the Institute of France’s ‘Académie des inscriptions et belles-lettres’ in 2003. He is at the same time very active in the community and in politics, within the Belgian Labour Party.
