GHENT University

Ghent University is an open, pluralistic and socially engaged university. It is more than 200 years old, offers more than 200 programmes (including 64 English-taught master’s programmes) and conducts in-depth research within a wide range of scientific domains.

Our credo is Dare to Think: we are a haven for courageous thinkers. Our organisational model provides autonomy for 11 faculties and their departments, supported by 9 central administrative departments.

In Agriloop, the Ghent University team is working on Microbial and fungal protein production. They also helping on Pilot-scale production, biorefineries process and end-usages in close to real conditions. This will help to demonstrate in close to real environment the best innovative value chains.

Ramon Ganigué

My research focuses on the study of anaerobic microbial conversions in engineered environments (e.g. the metabolic behaviour of microbial communities and their individual species, their physiological response to changes in the environment and the interactions between species in the community). My main goal is to understand how to steer and harness these microbial communities for biotechnological applications, such as the production of bio-chemicals from wastes.
