The Groningen Engineering Center (GEC) offers a unique platform for interdisciplinary engineering research and education, gathering scientists who bridge fundamental sciences and applications in a comprehensive environment. Through interdisciplinary research that integrates process and product development and fruitful collaborations between researchers and industry, we produce innovation in fields such as energy, materials and health. We aim to train tomorrow’s engineering professionals, be in the lead of cutting-edge, interdisciplinary engineering research and spearhead innovation at national and European level.
GEC received regional funding to set up the Groningen Engineering Business Center (GEBC); a collaboration between industry and the university to develop a sustainable relationship in the field of engineering. GEBC aims at encouraging and facilitating research and innovation of companies in the Northern Netherlands, as well as to make the region more attractive for academically trained employees.
