Research is carried out by the various research groups, each consisting of a professor, lecturing researchers, researchers and students. We translate the results of our research projects into teaching content that fits the needs of bio-based professional practice, now and in the future.
In our ongoing research, which is driven by companies with actual questions, we strive for continuous input from lecturers and students; the correct project methodology ensures quality. There are 4 research groups at the Centre of Expertise Bio-based Economy (CoE BBE): Bio-based Building, Bio-based Products, Bio-based Resources & Energy and Marine Bio-based Specialties. We also work closely with the research group Bio-based Art & Design at the St. Joost School of Fine Art and Design.
