Flanders Make Symposium 2018: the future of the manufacturing industry

Op dinsdag 27 november organiseren we ons jaarlijks Symposium in Kinepolis Antwerpen. Tijdens deze inspirerende dag zullen we de trends bespreken die de toekomst van de maakindustrie zullen definiëren. We illustreren onze onderzoeksresultaten en tonen concrete cases van bedrijven waarmee we samenwerken. Ons jaarlijks Symposium is ook een geweldige netwerkgelegenheid. Je ontmoet daar, onder andere, CEO's, CTO's en R&D managers van grote bedrijven en KMO's. Tijdens de netwerkmomenten kan je overigens ook deelnemen aan verschillende demonstraties van de resultaten van onze samenwerkingen met bedrijven en andere onderzoekscentra.
