Description
Ghent University has a longstanding chemical tradition with research activities present in three different faculties, namely the Faculty of Sciences, the Faculty of Bioscience Engineering and the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture. The Center forSustainable Chemistry is an umbrella organization fully supported by these three faculties and wants to respond to the implementation of SusChem as the European Technology Platform for Sustainable Chemistry at the European level. The implementation of the innovation cluster policy at the Flemish level also resulted in the recent foundation of Catalisti as the spearhead cluster on Chemistry and Plastics.
