Baekeland grants: This system finances researchers who prepare a PhD thesis in a Flemish university and in close connection with the business world. One of the fundamental ideas of the Baekeland is that a Flemish company should be involved in the strategic orientation of the project and that should cofinance the project. On the other hand the Flemish university should accompany the researcher to his/her PhD thesis and the attribution of a PhD degree in accordance with the valid quality norms.

Speaker: Coordinator Els Tourwé.
