About the centre

The Sarton Centre for History of Science is an interdisciplinary research centre, founded in 2003, exploring the history of knowledge acquisition, circulation and foundation. It is made up of researchers across many different departments and faculties at Ghent University. The research projects of its members span several centuries, regions and cultures, as well as disciplines and fields – ranging from medieval natural philosophy to technology transfer and medicine in the 20th century, and from China to the Low Countries and Congo.
