Lucien Koopmans

Full Professor at Combustion

Lucien Koopmans is the head of the division of combustion and propulsion systems. He has a background at Volvo Car Corporation where he started in 1996 as an engine test-cell engineer and finished in 2017 as Director of Engine Advanced Engineering. His main goal is to provide knowledge for the development of an affordable sustainable propulsion system: a hybrid electric vehicle with a small battery and a highly efficient internal combustion engine with zero emissions and operating on CO2 neutral fuels.
