Teams

CORE


CORE is a cooperation of innovative engineering students and engaged partners who develop and support projects concerning efficient and sustainable energy consumption.


For this, CORE offers a development platform for COREnauts which strengthens their professional orientation, develops a vision on sustainability and offers the cooperative ICA-model of entrepreneurship.


Through intelligent communication, CORE raises awareness among students and their environment about the practical application of cooperative entrepreneurship and the importance of rational energy consumption.


iGEM


Being creative with modern-day social, medical and environmental related problems with the help of genetic manipulation, that's what iGem is all about. The team competes in the largest and most prestigious competition in synthetic biology in Boston, USA.



AGORIA SOLAR TEAM


Building the Belgian Solar Car and participating in the World Solar Challenge, the world championship for solar-powered vehicles.


KU Leuven engineering students – armed solely with a high dose of enthusiasm, motivation and courage – make up the core of the Agoria Solar Team. They have 15 months to complete their mission.


During this adventure, they discover what it means to transform a design into a real creation and putting it to the test.


In 2019, they became world champions!



FORMULA ELECTRIC BELGIUM


Formula Electric Belgium unites a group of motivated engineering students from different KU Leuven and Thomas More campuses. The Formula project offers team members a unique experience in international motorsport.


Every year, Formula Electric Belgium develops and builds a high-performance, green, electric, one-man racing car. During the summer, the team travels through Europe with the green bolide to participate in different matches of the Formula Student competition.


The team actively promotes electric driving and shares acquired knowledge and experience with other students by developing informative educational modules.



NeuroTech Leuven


Using brainwaves, 3D-printing, advanced electronics, signal analysis, machine learning and so much more, the student team of NeuroTech Leuven fuses neurology, technology and psychology into one. As part of the NeuroTechX community, they participate in a global competition against 30+ other student teams, each competing to present the best neurotech project to a panel of judges.


In addition to this competitive element, NeuroTech Leuven organizes and attends events, where they showcase their software and hardware in an interactive way. They also connect students, experts and companies to further develop everyone's professional network.



AETHER


The Aether team brings together young engineers who are passionate about space technology. We are designing a CubeSat: a nanosatellite consisting of 10x10x10 cm units. In the past decade, the CubeSat standard has enabled countless new innovations in the space industry.


We are designing our satellite to survive atmospheric re-entry. This allows us to retrieve the scientific experiments on board: bringing sample recovery to the small and accessible CubeSat platform!


CIRCL-E


Nearly one-third of all food produced in the world is never eaten. Team Circl-E unites engineering students to develop innovative and circular solutions which contribute to a more sustainable food system. The work of this team is made possible through the generous support of partnerships with various companies. Thanks to these collaborations, the students are introduced to all aspects of entrepreneurship and business innovation.


In brief, the Circl-E team offers a unique and hands-on experience with the opportunity to create a lasting social impact.


START-UP TEAM


Student-entrepreneurs active in the fields of science, engineering and technology are also supported by Technovation Hub.


Join our start-up community and share knowledge, experiences and contacts with other tech start-ups.


In addition, you can benefit from the coaching and hands-on workshops from technology and business experts (both from the university and the business world).
