About us

EnerGentIC is the  interdisciplinary community of Ghent University researchers working on the energy challenge. 

Supported by a core team, there are three main activities in our portfolio:

  • Research and valorisation, i.e. from applied research with industry to fundamental research
  • Education and training, i.e. from life-long training for industry professionals to master student programmes/projects
  • Supporting & stimulating the energy transition, i.e. creating awareness and supporting the societal 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 EnerGentIC is an active partner..

The challenges related to the energy require a multidisciplinary approach. Therefore, EnerGentIC 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. 

EnerGentIC clusters some pre-existing energy related activities of Ghent University, namely SET and Power-Link.
