In Belgium, the model of the university museum as an outgrowth of and responsive to a closely knit academic community is gradually giving way to that of an institution which aims to serve a larger public. But this evolution has been uneven and is far from universal, as explained by Bernard van den Driessche, administrator of the Museum of Louvain-la-Neuve (Catholic University of Louvain), which he helped set up in 1979. Vice-chairman from 1992 to 1995 of the ICOM Belgian National Committee, he was co-ordinator of several issues of La vie des musées (Museum Life) published by the French-speaking Association of Belgian Museums. He is currently president of Museums and Society in Wallonia, an association formed in 1998.
