Ghent University concludes framework agreement with ArcelorMittal Gent

(05-10-2016) Ghent University has concluded a framework agreement with ArcelorMittal Gent for a long-term cooperation. Thus, both partners want to create a common platform for the exchange of knowledge, training, research and development.

Ghent University has an active policy to integrate knowledge and expertise in the society and economy. "Ghent University needs to be actively engaged with the problems of today and tomorrow in order to achieve impact," says Rector Anne De Paepe. Industrial collaborations are an essential part of this. These are made possible by the Industrial Research Fund. Thanks to the Industrial Research Fund, basic research is being developed in a technological proof of concept, and ArcelorMittal Ghent can develop this further in an industrial environment.
