Product Quality and Innovation Research Institute for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food
Optimal processing of primary agricultural products (plant and animal) into quality food, feed and non-food products is our focus, particularly dairy, meat and fish products, ready-made meals, vegetables and fruits. We study quality improvement, authenticity, nutritional and functional properties, taste, nutrition and health, detection of GMOs and allergens, valorization of secondary flows and new applications from plant biotechnology.

Growth and Development Research Institute for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food
Here we perform fundamental research on plant genomic function and interaction with environmental factors. Which molecular and physiological processes explain growth, development and their interaction with light, humidity or temperature? Using advanced technologies, we study plant physiology, biochemistry, image analysis, genetics and genomics. This knowledge is applied in innovative crop husbandry and breeding techniques.
Agricultural and Farm Development Research Institute for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food
We study the complexity of choices made to increase sustainability. How does a competitive and sustainable production system function within an environmental, market and policy context? What makes it shock-resistant? We study the resilience of agricultural systems, develop decision support tools and models, study collaboration in the agro-food chain, create sustainability assessment tools and study learning processes in farmer groups.

Development and regeneration, Kulak Campus Kortrijk involved in stem cell and developmental biology, human reproduction, pre-and postnatal development and the wider scope of regenerative medicine.
The Centre for Research & Development Monitoring (Expertisecentrum Onderzoek en Ontwikkelingsmonitoring, ECOOM) is an interuniversity consortium with participation of all Flemish universities (KU Leuven, UGent, VUB, UA and UHasselt). Its mission is to develop a consistent system of R&D and Innovation (RD&I) indicators for the Flemish government. This indicator system has to assist the Flemish government in mapping and monitoring ...
