Koen De Voegt

Bio

I'm an engineer in Electronics and ICT, after completion of my masters degree I studied another year this time in the field of economics. I job-hopped quit a bit in my career, but the most notable time in my professional life was my position as research engineer. For over two years I got the opportunity to dedicate myself to full-time research at Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs in my home city of Antwerp. The main project I was involved with there was called „DIY smart experiences”. During this work I got to know Hackerspaces and FabLabs. Which led me to become a very active member in the Belgian Hacker movement and co-founder of two of the lands Hackerspaces. In 2011 I joined the Pirate Party of Belgium (PPBE). A few months later I founded the local branch of PPBE in Antwerp. I represented PPBE on several international conferences and became member of the national Coreteam in June 2012.
