Research projects

Some of our research projects

As a member of the Department of Build Environment, we are also proud members of the Centre for Applied Data Science (CADS) and Sustainable land use and mobility (DRUM) at HOGENT. Furtermore, we are involved in various projects on the digitalization of cultural heritage, as part of HERITΛGE.
