“As a technical project manager, you spend time discussing and challenging people. In the project I get really enthusiastic when we are trying different things.

"Working together with so many partners (private and academic) keeps your scope quite open. My territory is never narrowed down to one specific technical detail. Before Flanders Make I had some management experience for a supplier to the automotive industry. My knowledge background is electro-mechanical and mechatronics. Today one of my projects is totally out of my own field of expertise, it is about additive manufacturing processes.” (Technical project manager since 2016 @ Flanders Make)
