UAntwerp sponsors TEDx Antwerp

Date: 15 September 2017

Introduction: On September 30th, the very first edition of TEDx Antwerp will take place. UAntwerp is the main sponsor of this innovative event. The Valorisation Office will be manning a booth together with some enthusiastic researchers.

“We’re very proud that our university is the main sponsor of the first TEDx Antwerp. Together with the city of Antwerp, the Harbour of Antwerp, IMEC and industrial players we want to valorise our knowledge. The University of Antwerp, VITO and the higher education institutions perform ground-breaking innovative research at an international level. The Antwerp ecosystem is a place where new ideas, collaborations and synergies can emerge and grow. In that way our mission is very similar to that of TEDx Antwerp”, says Silvia Lenaerts, vice-rector Valorisation and Development.
