The Beacon is all about gathering and nurturing IoT talent. Innovative start-ups and scale-ups will get the chance to develop their businesses in co-working spaces and open offices. International technology suppliers will make their knowledge accessible, as they will also be establishing their IoT departments in the new building.
In order to bridge the gap between business and research, the University of Antwerp and strategic research center imec will both realize projects in The Beacon. Agoria, the Belgian business and trade federation, will also be a key collaborator.
