BiELAt Foundation is a small team of professionals. They combine their jobs with their non-profit work for the Foundation. Their goal is to promote the cooperation between entrepreneurs, research institutes, government and academia in the Eindhoven-Leuven-Aachen. At first the foundation, founded in 2004, focused mainly on a big annual network conference in Eindhoven. In five successful years BiELAt succeeded to get people together from different countries in an environment where a meeting of minds became a meeting of hearts. With numerous business opportunities as a result. Now, it’s time for a next step forward.

The BiELAt Business Summit brings together more than 200 key decision makers and opinion leaders from the worlds of industry, academia and government.
