Currently, the universities of Hasselt and Maastricht work together as the Transnational University Limburg (t UL). In 2001 the Flemish and Dutch Ministers of Education signed an International Treaty by which the transnational University Limburg (t UL) was founded.
Together with Hogeschool PXL, it established the Limburg Association of Higher Education (AUHL). Academic staff from Hasselt University and from nearby Maastricht University (in the Dutch Province of Limburg) since then jointly undertake research activities and offer degree programmes in Life Sciences and Computer Sciences.
