Three cube-shaped buildings which contain no fewer than 16 companies and which are the location for numerous meetings, seminars and training events on a daily basis: that's 3Square.

In recent years, the port city and metropolis of Rotterdam has also become a breeding ground for innovative entrepreneurship. The Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship (ECE) houses almost 100 companies which together form a community of driven entrepreneurs. These six floors are simply bursting with innovation and our Bringme Box feels like a fish in the harbour water there. We went to take a look.
The KU Leuven is one of the oldest universities in Europe. But that doesn’t mean it’s out-dated, as last year’s decision to allow all 40,000 students to use Bringme proves. Great move!

Tucked away in the greenery in Kortrijk lies a brilliant feat of architecture: the Barco One Campus.

And yet, with Sabine Bouckaert, Program Manager of the Barco One Campus, we mainly talked about ... people.
