On Thursday, October 13, VUB research groups B-PHOT, Brubotics and MOBI showcase innovations at the ‘Innovatiebeurs’, a match making event between industry and Flemish research centres. The event takes place in C-Mine in Genk.


It is no coincidence that the three VUB resarch centres are present at the Innovatiebeurs. Being partners of Flanders Make, their objective is to raise the level of innovation in local companies.


B-PHOTactive in Photonics Research, Innovation and Education , will showcase the impact of Photonics on the innovation of advanced manufacturing . The visitors of their booth will have the opportunity to grasp the overwhelming variety of industrial innovation challenges that can be tackled by photonics.


Brubotics on the other hand is a Human Robotic Research Center. Its goal is to help shape a future where human robotics improves the quality of life of people. At the fair in Genk, they will show several exciting robotic applications, especially focussing on the make industry.


MOBI, the Mobility, Logistics and Automotive Technology Research Centre, is leader in defining the state-of-the-art in Electromobility and Socio-Economic Evaluations for sustainable mobility and logistics. The latest innovation in battery packs will be presented at its booth.


B-PHOT, MOBI and Brubotics can be visited on the so-called ‘Make industry and logistics’ island. The other theme islands are ‘Construction, environment, energy, chemistry’, ‘Care, agro, food, lifetech’, ‘Creative technologies’ and ‘Business’.
