Description of Ghent University

Founded in 1817 as a Latin-speaking State University by William I, King of the Netherlands, Ghent University is a relatively young university. In 1930 Ghent University became the first Dutch-speaking university in Belgium. The Decree of 1991 granted great autonomy to the university. Over the years eminent scientists such as Joseph Plateau (physicist, considered as a pioneer in the development of motion pictures), Leo Baekeland (inventor of Bakelite) and Corneel Heymans (Nobel Prize winner in Medicine) studied and worked at Ghent University. Prof. Corneel Heymans of Ghent was the only Flemish person to receive the Nobel Prize (1938) for his discoveries in the field of respiratory regulation. With a view to cooperation in research and scientific service, numerous research groups, centres and institutes have been founded over the years. Several of them are renowned worldwide, in various scientific disciplines such as biotechnology, aquaculture, microelectronics, history,... in 2010, five multidisciplinary research partnerships were founded as part of a strategic spearhead research policy plan promoting excellence in research. Ghent University is an open, committed and pluralistic university with a broad international perspective and research-inspired educational programmes.
