RE-SOURCE.BIO combines the ITN-RESOURCE and the AOP:

Previously known as ITN-INFINITY, the ITN-RESOURCE.BIO clusters the international academic collaborations within AUGent with focus on bioresource recovery from by-products and waste streams in the agro-food value chain.

It specifically aims at:

  • Supporting UGent international educational programs, with a strong collaboration with China;

  • Fostering a vigorous student exchange - for all involved international partners, including a consolidated network with Asian Partners, we have a focus on Joint PhD development and establishment of a cohesive community around these PhDs;

  • Outreaching to researchers through summers schools and participation at international conferences.

Association Research Platform

Stimulates and strengthens research and services on resource recovery within the AUGent association via co-promotion of PhDs, joint submissions of projects and funding requests, and knowledge exchange via seminars.
