Faculty of Applied Sciences | Societal impact: Security

(Code: ULB818)

Person in charges of the unit : GODET Stéphane, DELPLANCKE Marie-Paule, VENKATESAN Prakash.

The research activities of the 4MAT Department focus on inorganic materials. They cover the entire life-cycle of materials from their synthesis and
processing to the optimal management of their end of life going through the optimization of their (micro)structures for a given application. This approach is
mainly driven by the scarcity of resources that makes sustainable development a priority.

The research topics are both of fundamental and industrial
interests. This implies a large variety of research funding schemes going from European and national projects to direct funding from industrial partners.

present website intends to give you a glimpse of our main activities. Do not hesitate to contact us for further details and … let’s go 4 MATerials!
