Baekeland mandates

What does a Baekeland mandate entail?

A subsidy for strategic basic research projects with an economic finality by PhD students in cooperation with a Flemish enterprise.

This program supports basic research that – if successful- has clear economic objectives and offers added value to the company involved in the project. The research should be directed towards obtaining a doctorate (PhD) degree and meets the criteria for doctoral research. In other words, the project is characterized as strategic basic research with an economic finality that is innovative and provides the PhD student with ample intellectual properties. It aims to build scientific or technological knowledge as a basis for economic applications.
