Howest as an industry partner
Howest University College has a long history of knowledge collaboration with both large international corporations as local SME’s. Since Howest UC was founded in the late 1880’s by industry-players, industry collaboration is in our blood: 99,9% of our research projects are either demand driven or in close collaboration with the industry.
Until today, Howest proves to be the partner of choice with a solid reputation for both profit and social profit organizations. We do that in multiple ways: by contract research for one or more organizations, policy-oriented research, licensing or by the creation of spin-offs. But we do more: if necessary we create new sector platforms. To do all this, we deploy our expert researchers (f/m), who professionally support the field in their innovation. This is what they do. They are either Bachelor or Master or have obtained their PhD, in line with their expertise and/or specific task.
Small in size, but not in numbers: since 1998, Howest UC has – in its function as lever to the working field – already gathered over 100 millon EUR of innovative means (European, federal, Flemish) for implementation-oriented research in function of innovation projects on demand of and for the working field.
