Why attend Hack Belgium?
Together with 1000 participants, we’re going to tackle the societal challenges we feel aren’t being taken seriously enough. Twelve challenges, touching every facet of our lives and society. The 3-day program will take us from inspiration to building to launching our own projects. Projects that bring us new opportunities, new business and new perspectives.
You’ll receive the best support Belgium has to offer: 140 workshops and consultation sessions on design, business and technology. More than 200 experts to help you with every question. 10 emerging technologies present on site. It’s the best place for you to forge new partnerships and to get that new spine-tingling project going.
Smart Cities inspirational workshops by Jan Adriaenssens - Director City of Things
Cities are not the problem: they are the solution. But these solutions do create more problems that need more solutions,… until millions of people are caught up in a mad race to feed the problem-solving, problem-creating frenzy. At imec, we look at the promise of Internet of Things in smart cities, and how large scale infrastructure can support human ingenuity in finding real approaches in making cities (even) more liveable and prosperous. In his talk, Jan Adriaenssens (director City of Things, imec) will look at past evolutions and future possibilities in deploying technology, not for the sake of it, but for its citizens, professionals and visitors.
