Summary for 2020

The year 2020 has been greatly impacted by the coronavirus outbreak.  However, it was still an exciting year for our Analysis & PDE Centre at UGent. Here we try to summarise the main highlights from this year:

Interesting fact: our website had more than 35000 views for 2020 year and 11538 views for 2019 year.

Members of our Analysis & PDE Centre in 2020 attracted more than 2,000,000 in research funding, as well as received a number of awards and prizes for their research.
