Vision and values

Our mission

Society's problems do not exist in silos. Resource recovery is no exception to this rule. To develop breakthrough innovations, multi- and interdisciplinary cooperation is needed. For companies that want to be part of this paradigm shift, university cooperation is of vital importance. For academic researchers that want to bring new ideas to practice, industrial cooperation from the early beginning is essential. R2T wants to leverage knowledge, experience and skills of both sides to develop and implement breakthrough technology and train tomorrow's professionals.

Our values

R²T is a strategic partnership, which means longer term collaboration (>5j) and shared benefits are aimed for. Hence, the membership comprises mutual commitment of both the involved UGent partners and the member companies. We strive for connection, trust, multidisciplinarity and complementarity in our consortium in order to tackle various societal challenges. Besides setting up excellent science projects with different partners, we want to train employable and innovation driven engineers.
