Ghent University offers high-quality, research-based education in all academic disciplines

Greater than €175 million is invested in research projects on behalf of public and private partners. Today Ghent University attracts over 28,000 students and 6,500 staff members, of which 912 professors. The Faculty of Bioscience Engineering is concerned with research on the production and processing of living matter, with a view to producing healthy, safe and long-term products. The Department of Agricultural Economics, and in particular the Division of Agri-food Marketing and Chain Management contributes to this objective by applying socio-economic and marketing techniques to agri-food in the broadest sense: involving consumer studies, supply chain management, innovation and network studies, waste treatment and diversification (traditional products, food tourism).
