The AUGENT COMMUNITY (AOP) aims to increase the internal cohesion between Researchers active in the field of bioresource recovery. It also aims to interlink AUGent platforms and initiatives in this domain via:

  • organizing internal seminars in each of the Working Groups' topics;

  • maintaining a website as a central round-about, directing internal and external stakeholders to the right platform or service of AUGent.

Bioresource Recovery – putting the circular economy to action

The cycle of scientific seminars will be focused on topics related to both bioresource recovery and the circular economy, bringing together experts from all disciplines across the AUGent (UGent, HoGent, Artevelde Hogeschool,  and HOWEST).

By following these courses, PhD students can accumulate ECTS points for coursework.


The seminar series currently includes six courses and additional seminars will be shared soon.
