Description
EnerGhentIC is the interdisciplinary community of Ghent University researchers working on the energy challenge. As such we bring added value to industry, governments, students, colleagues and peers. We align some or our activities a.o. with the spearhead cluster Flux 50, in which EnerGhentIC is an active partner. The challenges related to the energy require a multidisciplinary approach. Therefore, EnerGhentIC adopts researchers acitive in engineering (ICT, electrical, mechanical), bio-engineering, economics, legal, ... . The involved research groups are active both on the Ghent University sites in Ghent, Kortrijk and Ostend.
