Flanders Technology & Innovation

Celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Photonics Innovation Center with us! At Flanders Technology and Innovation (FTI), the biggest tech fair in Flanders and Brussels, B-PHOT opens up its labs to the broad public.

FTI Brussel, organised by Vrije Universiteit Brussel, hosts several inspiring activities from 15 to 24 March 2024. Register for a guided tour at the Photonics Innovation Center on 16 or 17 March 2024 and experience how photonics and light innovate society. This family-friendly activity also offers STEAM activities for kids and youngsters to discover technology with a wide range of experiments at the Photonics Campus.

Innovation & Industry

B-PHOT embraces collaborations with companies: SMEs, large established companies, as well as new start-ups. Our well-established value chain from design to prototyping, testing and demonstration, and our pilot line infrastructure for freeform optics ensure methodological product innovation for companies and partners with a direct link to manufacturing. Last year was a breakthrough period for PhotonHub Europe and also in other collaborations and platforms, B-PHOT took a prominent role to enable photonics to be a key factor for innovation in Flanders, Belgium, Europe and worldwide.

PhotonHub Experience Centre on Optics & Freeform Optics

Last year, B-PHOT hosted several trainings for engineers, developers and professionals in the framework of PhotonHub’s Demo & Experience Centres. Our researchers opened up their labs and shared basic technical insights and skills in optics and freeform optics design, prototyping, metrology and manufacturing.
