Diversity in AP’s research projects is even more enhanced since the practice-based scientific research and the artistic research both have their own specific characteristics.
Nevertheless, the following general principles apply for all research at AP:
Researchers at AP University College intensively collaborate with companies and institutions in their fields. This intensive collaboration ensures that the results and output of research projects find their way to professionals in the field. It also improves the relation between research and services at AP University College.
AP is also involved in science communication to the public. The Antwerp University Association organizes each year a Science Day with workshops and demonstrations given by researchers. AP also organizes STEM workshops for young children. In these workshops children are actively engaged in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, coached by students of our Education & Training Department.
AP University College supports students who want to combine studying with starting their own business. AP provides information, network opportunities and tailor-made special facilities. Entrepreneurial students can also rely on TAKEOFFANTWERP, an alliance of the Antwerp University Association with the city of Antwerp. TAKEOFFANTWERP offers working space, seminars, coaching for starters and networking opportunities.
