About the flax banner at the top of this page: Nico F. Declercq is the grandson of Michel A. R. Declercq (Wielsbeke 1906 - Deerlijk 1963), an erudite farmer and flax merchant born at Wielsbeke in Belgium not far from Kortrijk along the Golden River. Nowadays carbon fiber reinforced composites typically contain carbonized flax fibers and are one of the main research topics of Declercq's team at Georgia Tech Lorraine.
