Enviromics is a one-stop-shop for environmental studies
Enviromics is a multidisciplinary consortium of UAntwerp researchers with a focus on environmental sciences and technologies. Through impactful fundamental and interdisciplinary approaches in biology, (bio)chemistry and bioscience engineering, the consortium offers solutions for ecosystem challenges through a strong interaction between three pillars (i) Environmental applications and nature-based solutions, (ii) Sensing and analysis and (iii) Microbial technology and biomaterials. All this is supported by sustainable Product Development and Technology Assessment. Where relevant, Citizen Science approaches are included.
Enviromics is an expertise technology consortium (IOF consortium). Companies can call upon the consortium for partnerships and the use of certain technologies or expertise. Expertise technology consortia are financed by the Industrial Research Fund (IOF). These financial resources are used to support basic research in the economic field and are awarded to the universities by means of a distribution key. The industrial revenues, patents and spin-offs generated by an association have an impact on this distribution key.
