SuperNova 2018: Are you joining us?


At the first ever edition of SuperNova, the VUB will showcase exciting advances in some of the most hyped technologies of the moment that lead to the world's most groundbreaking innovations. The Vrije Universiteit Brussel strongly believes in the power of working across disciplines, connecting with the outside world, bridging different disciplines and breaking down the walls.

We are looking forward to welcome you at the TTO booth and VUB booth where we will take you on a photonics journey showing how smart applications of the technology of light that can be game-changing to a very broad range of domains, from 3D printing of organs to strawberry harvesting and freeform optics for car displays.

Other research groups with most interesting applications are keeping us company:

BruBotics , the Brussels Human Robotics Research Center, will show what is possible when humans and robots start to collaborate and how different fields of science are needed to create a positive robotic future in healthcare, industry and at home.

The VUB AI Lab , the first AI lab on continental Europe, will submerse you into the fascinating study of Artificial Intelligence to show how studying human intelligence leads to artificial intelligence and how artificial intelligence helps us understand human intelligence.

ETRO , Electronics & Informatics, will showcase the HoloLens, or how extending both image stabilization and data visualization allows surgeons to directly visualize data inside the patient and how it helps medical professionals to grasp the future.

So, don't miss VUB at the SuperNova Tech Fair and the SuperNova Exhibition from 27 till 30 September 2018. On Thursday and Friday SuperNova will only be accessible for B2B visitors, but during the weekend SuperNova will open its doors with free entrance for everyone.
