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.


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!


FLACRA (Flexible Autonomous & Cooperative Robot Applications) is a group of KU Leuven engineering students who design and develop autonomous and collaborative robots in order to provide innovative support to different sectors.

In addition, FLACRA aims to organise STEM-related projects which have a positive effect on both education concerning and awareness of robotics and automation. In this way, the team tries to speak to a wide audience and to focus on additive collaboration between man and robot, instead of on the substitutional role robots can play in professional environments.

FLACRA aims to discover and develop innovative technologies with its team members, ranging from mechanical robot design to AI programming and mobile mapping.

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.


The Innovived team bridges the gap between life sciences and technology. The team members find themselves in a unique environment where they come into contact with engineers and professionals from various fields of expertise.

Every day Innovived works on innovative, sustainable and challenging projects in which they combine biology with prototyping technology. Moreover, they annually participate in the international student competition CoLiTe.


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).


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!


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.


If you have an idea for a new team, let us know! Students, companies as well as researchers may propose ideas for new teams. Together, we will be happy to examine whether your ideas are feasible and whether we can add value from Technovation Hub.
