Biography of

Bert Brouwers (1949) obtained his MSc in Mechanical Engineering at TU/e in 1972 (cum laude). A PhD was received at Twente University in 1976. Advisors: Wijngaarden and prof.dr.J.Los (University of Amsterdam).

In 1972 he started as Research Engineer at the Ultra Centrifuge Laboratory of UCN/Urenco in Amsterdam. In 1974 he became Head Isotopes Separations Research.

In 1979 he joined Royal/Dutch Shell. First he was Group Leader in Offshore Research at the Exploration and Production Laboratory in Rijswijk. In 1983 he moved to London to become Staff Member Economics.

Brouwers switched from industry to academia in 1986 when he was appointed as full professor and head of the laboratory of Thermal Engineering at Twente University.

In 1998 he came to the Technical University of Eindhoven to become full professor and head of the Section of Process Technology of the Mechanical Engineering Department.

From 1 October 2014 he is emeritus professor of Eindhoven University of Technology and from 2015 to 2016 remote professor of National Research Nuclear University MEPHI Moscow

Since 2015 he is CEO of the Romico Companies which were founded by him.

Bert Brouwers has made innovative contributions to science and technology. In addition to publications with co-authors he is single author of more than 20 peer reviewed articles on a variety of subjects published in scientific and engineering journals: Physics Review E, Physica D Non-Linear Phenomena, Theoretical and Mathematical Physics, Flow Turbulence and Combustion, Journal of Engineering Mathematics, Reliability Engineering, Ocean Engineering, Nuclear Technology, Physics of Fluids, mdpi Fluids and Separations.

Bert is the inventor of patented methods and devices for separating particles and gases employing the principles of centrifugation, fluid flow and diffusion. Know-how and IP rights are vested in the Romico Companies. In cooperation with licensing companies practical versions of the inventions are developed and implemented worldwide:

In 1999 Bert was awarded the Dow Chemical Energy Price. He held short term advisor ships to URENCO Nederland BV: Almelo NL, Shell Information Technology International: London, GB and the International Atomic Energy Agency IAEA: Vienna, AT. His research at universities was supported by funds from government institutions of EU and NL and from private companies. Bert Brouwers has been supervisor of more than 200 engineering degrees and advanced engineering degrees and over 40 PhD-degrees awarded at Twente University and Eindhoven University of Technology.
