Experience

The Composite Materials Group of the Department of Materials Engineering of KU Leuven has about 35 years of experience in research on many aspects of composites technology, from processing to testing to analysis of composite materials. Since the late nineties one of the focal points has been natural fibre composites, with the aim to develop more sustainable, environmentally friendly composites. Research on natural fibre composites target the weaker or less developed aspects regarding durability.

Thematic priorities:

  • Resource & materials efficiency
