Belgian Entrepreneurs Visit Berkeley

On May 10, IES welcomed a group of seventy entrepreneurs of middle-sized and large companies from Belgium to the Berkeley campus, including KBC Bank, Soudal, and Ganda. The visit was part of a five-day tour of the Bay Area organized by the Belgian-American Chamber of Commerce (BelCham). Upon arrival, the group attended a lecture on artificial intelligence and robotics given by Pieter Abbeel, Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS). Then, following a lunch at the Faculty Club, IES Director Jeroen Dewulf conducted a campus tour, which introduced the group to some of the iconic landmarks of the campus while highlighting the university’s many contributions to society.
