Today KU Leuven is an important European institution for academic research and education. The local economy is based on spin-offs from academic research, mainly biotech and ICT companies, as well as private service providers in the medical field in connection with Gasthuisberg, the academic hospital and research centre. The tradition of breweries in Leuven still continues, as Leuven is home to the world’s largest brewer group and one of the top-five consumer goods companies in the world, Anheuser-Busch InBev.

This event will once again showcase the best international advances in precision engineering fields such as additive manufacturing, medical products, micro-biology, nano &micro manufacturing, metrology, mechatronic systems & control, renewable energy technologies and ultra precision machines.
