Become a partner of FEARS!

On Thursday October 26, 2023, the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture (FEA) will organize its 21st research symposium. This edition will once again be a physical meeting platform for companies and engineering-oriented researchers. The faculty's goal is to pull research away from dusty desks or hidden labs and look for collaborations and inspiration to even better address today's problems.

FEARS is a very popular event where students, researchers, valorization experts, professors and visitors all find their match. Our industrial partners play an essential role at this event. The variety of attendees provides an unique opportunity to build a solid network. Finally, the coffee breaks and workshops provide the opportunity to discuss ongoing and future collaborations. Of course, pitches/demos and posters sessions by internal and external experts will bring you up to speed on the very latest technologies within FEA.

Previous editions

Our faculty has a strong track record of industrial collaborations and wants to build on that experience. During the previous edition, 273 researchers submitted a poster, pitch or demo. The website, including all partner logos was sent to the entire faculty (+/- 2000 people), the partner logos were projected throughout the day, and at the event itself there was the possibility to distribute promo material.

Previous editions

In the 2023 edition the theme of FEARS is research in industry. The program is tailered to stmulate collaboration between academia and industry.
