Dario Bauso joins the workshop as representative for the ENTEG research institute of the Faculty of Science and Engineering of the University of Groningen.


About the ENgineering and TEchnology institute Groningen (ENTEG)

The research institute ENTEG ( is the Engineering Science and Technology institute of the University of Groningen, the Netherlands. ENTEG research is highly multidisciplinary in nature and focuses on fundamental and applied research on the development of new and innovative processes and products for a wide range of product sectors.


Process driven research activities are performed in the field of chemical and biochemical systems, mechanical and electric systems and system networks. Typical product sectors include biobased products (e.g. biobased monomers), tailored, complex materials such as advanced polymers or polymeric formulations (e.g. adhesives), catalysts, mechatronic devices (e.g. a chopper mechanism in a telescope, actuator and sensor design integrated in robots) and software and algorithms.

Design, control, modelling and analyses complement the activities. The research performed at our institute also pays attention to societal impact and as such contributes to the challenges of industry and society at large.

We are looking for potential PhD candidates in the following disciplines:

  • Systems and Control (applied mathematics, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, etc)
  • Material Science and Engineering (mechanical engineering, materials engineering, applied physics etc.)
  • Chemical Engineering (Green chemical reaction engineering, product technology, biotechnology etc.)

Come and meet the University of Groningen

We highly value students that can acquire their own funding (e. g. CSC scholarship) and for excellent foreign candidates, we are always willing to assist in application for fellowships by providing the necessary acceptance letter of the hosting institute.
