Company Visit DronePort

On Tuesday 24/09, P&L visits DronePort

Company Visit DronePort

Dear P&L alumni,

DronePort, situated on the former airforce base of Brustem in Sint-Truiden, is becoming the dronehub for Flanders and even Europe. It is an ecosystem where startups that want to be part of this exciting new technology can perform research and development activities with unlimited possibilities for product and application development and testing. 

No doubt that also in the field of logistics activities, drones will play an important role in the near future. Many questions however remain: 

  • How is the drone industry structured?
  • What have drones to offer  to create more value for you or your  customers like by providing more efficient or better logistics services?
  • What about the complex legislation and the environmental impact?

To answer these and other questions, P&L (Vakgroep Productie & Logistiek, Ekonomika Alumni), organizes a visit to discover the DronePort facilities.

During this visit, we will be hosted by Mr. Mark Vanlook, CEO DronePort. For a quick overview of the DronePort Ecosystem, we invite you to have a look at their website
