The Beacon is the Community of digital technology pioneers. It is a virtual and physical meeting space that fosters collaboration. The Beacon sets up activities and matchmaking, and manages a work and meeting space of 9,300m². The Beacon creates a context where technology pioneers can be inspired, learn from each other, and ultimately collaborate. Because the challenges of our ports, cities and industries require collaboration, as much as they require innovation. The Beacon was founded by Agoria, Imec, Lantis, Port of Antwerp, City of Antwerp and University of Antwerp.
