  1. Running your company the smart way

    Everyone is talking about Industry 4.0 – from the Internet of Things, additive manufacturing and the cloud through to artificial intelligence, augmented reality and blockchain. But what does it all mean in practice? It’s not a question of if Industry 4.0 will drastically change the way we do business. It’s a question of when and how quickly. So how can you apply this technology in your business – not just to improve production and performance, but to make a difference for customers?
  2. Inclusion? A matter of common sense!

    The war for talent is raging, yet lots of talent remains unused. Women are still underrepresented in STEM sectors, 1 out of 10 LGBT+ people feel discriminated against when looking for a job or in the workplace, for trans people this figure is 1 out of 3, and almost 11% of trans people are unemployed. What can we do to improve the inclusion of these target groups? That was the focus of a joint research project carried out by Vlerick and KliQ vzw.
