Media-innovationweek 2018

(11-10-2018) Annually we organize the media-innovationweek, where experts reflect on digitization in media. This year this week took place from October 22 to 26, 2018.

All regular master classes were cancelled during this week and replaced by the program. It was a week with lectures, debates and workshops in which we introduced master students to important industrial and academic players in the innovation scene.

Samsung organized, on Friday October 26, the Digital Economy Day to end the annual media-innovationweek. During this day, top speakers (like Indra De Witte, former vice rector Freddy Mortier, president Benelux Menno Van Den Berg, Isabel Albers, Jeroen Lemaire, Prof. Eva Lievens and Frede Desmet) gave lectures, conduct debates, and students had the opportunity to solve a challenge from Samsung and pitch their idea for the entire audience (including a professional jury). This year, the Digital Economy Day was also open to students from other disciplines, which also included a delegation from the engineering sciences, economics and pedagogy.
