About AM-TEAM

Extending process understanding unprecedentedly

Our customers, from all over the globe, have always access to the latest available advanced models and see the state of the art limits continuously being pushed in the direction of their needs. Working with us, they have a great opportunity on international exposure, if desired. We continuously prove that trial-and-error approaches are no match for advanced modelling in terms of effectiveness and building process understanding.
AM-TEAM is a spin-off from the BIOMATH research group at Ghent University (www.biomath.ugent.be), which has gathered 11 years of expertise in process modelling in general and advanced process modelling in different applications. Being strategically linked to BIOMATH, AM-TEAM brings the latest model developments to practice, where they can have maximal impact.

Our four core values are

  • Fun (it must be a pleasure working for and with us)
  • Ambition (continuously pushing the state of the art forward)
  • AM-TEAM spirit (open culture, strong partnerships)
  • Good modelling practice (applying the right models to reach well defined objectives)
