Smart collaboration is in Piet Verhoeve's DNA. He gained experience from both the corporate side as CTO of Televic and from the academic side as Director ICON at iMinds/imec. That experience was bundled in the book Win-Winnovation, which was awarded the best book in the “Learn & Development” category. In 2019 he launched the successful co-creation hub Hangar K in Kortrijk and he's currently building a new crossover ecosystem between biotechnology, electronics ICT and medical devices. In addition, Piet is working on his own company that helps organizations to innovate and grow faster through smart collaboration.
Piet Verhoeve, after his engineering studies at the KU Leuven, obtained a doctorate at Ghent University, where he gained a lot of experience in European projects. Piet is also a guest professor at Ghent University and KU Leuven. In his scarce spare time, he supports all kinds of initiatives that make young people enthusiastic about technical or scientific studies (STEM, Coderdojo).
