Behind our ambitious mission and vision is a satisfied, motivated and happy team that radiates (work) fun.

We are a very diverse team!

We are creative minds who develop all kinds of things, from interactive exhibits to workshops, shows and demos.

We are pure-bred nerds: we're caught in the thrall of science and technology, both day and night.

We are engaged in what happens around us: we strive for a better future where science and technology play an important role.

A long way

In the 80s and 90s, when the Flemish do-centre for science and technology was still a far-off dream, we were already wetting the appetite of the Flemish people for science and technology. We did so as Flanders Technology International or F.T.I in short.

F.T.I is still the engine behind Technopolis.

Stephane Berghmans

The driving force behind our team is Stephane Berghmans, our General Manager.

"Together we face some big challenges: on the one hand present future technologies and, on the other hand build an online community of passionate people who help to shape our offer."
