"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)
