Over dit evenement

After successful visits to the ports of Liège and Zeebrugge, The Beacon Community will be on the road again in October. This time, we’ll visit the advanced technology center A6K in Charleroi. Inspired by – among others – The Beacon, a great local tech hub has been created, right next to the train station of Charleroi.

The purpose of this visit is not only to have a look at A6K and meet their residents, but foremost to engage in a discussion with some of their project and stakeholder groups. The industrial actors from the region, that are also part of the A6K ecosystem, will be present as well.
