Tel Aviv 2019

March 31st, 2019
Renaissance Hotel Tel Aviv

The Brabant Innovation Day is organized to foster innovation. Through keynotes from R&D centers from the province of Noord-Brabant we aim to bring together companies from various sectors that have an interest in the next generation of technology in fields such as Health, Food, Data communication and others. By sharing the vision of our R&D centers on their technology fields we hope to start discussions that will enable companies and our R&D centers to develop the products of the future.

Introduction by Noord-Brabant, Mr. Onno Huiskamp

Mr. Onno Huiskamp graduated in the Bsc. Management, Economics and Law at the UAS Tilburg in 2011. Since then, he worked for the regional development agency of Brabant (BOM) as a project manager High Tech Systems and Materials. He developed strategic acquisitions programme for the High Tech sector in the province of Brabant which he follow up with successful FDI missions to Japan, Taiwan and Israel. In 2016 he transferred to the province level where he continued his business development activities with a focus on Machine learning, Photonics, High Tech Agriculture, Medtech, Printing and others. His foremost focus is on the tech hubs of Tokyo, Tel Aviv, Munich and Boston.

Holst Centre: Digital Toolbox for 3D Printed Electronics, Mr. Gari Arutinov

Gari Arutinov received his B.S. and M.S. degrees both with honours in applied physics and mathematics from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology in 2008 and 2010, respectively. He holds a PhD degree in mechanical engineering from the Eindhoven University of Technology (2014). During his PhD he was involved in heterogeneous system integration and self-assembly processes. In 2014, he joined Holst Centre/TNO as a researcher working on the development of alternative printing, sintering and soldering technologies for low-cost flexible electronics. He is currently a team leader at Hybrid and Printed Electronic technology cluster at Holst Centre responsible for developing laser-based digital printing technologies. He is the author and co-authors of over 10 peer reviewed articles and holds over 15 patents.

AMsystems: Towards quality control for Additive Manufacturing, Mr. Thomas Hafkamp

Thomas Hafkamp is a PhD candidate in the AMSYSTEMS Center at Eindhoven University of Technology. His research interest lies in developing equipment and control architectures for industrial AM processes. These processes need to advance to higher production rates, improved product quality and increased product sizes to meet the high-tech industry’s needs. Control systems may prove a key enabler in advancing AM technology. To demonstrate this hypothesis, Thomas investigates the feasibility of integrating control systems into vat photopolymerization machines

PITC: Integrated photonics, Mr. Sylwester Latkowski

Sylwester obtained M.Sc. Eng. degrees in optoelectronics and technical physics from West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin, Poland and Ph.D degree from School of Electronic Engineering in Dublin City University, Ireland. His research activities were concerned with mode-locked semiconductor lasers, semiconductor optical amplifiers, millimeter and terahertz wave generation, all-optical data treatment, short optical pluses and optical coherent comb generation. In addition to his research he was part of assembly and installation team of DUV lithography tools at Intel Corporation, Leixlip, Ireland and later on he was working on product development for Pilot Photonics a Dublin based start-up.  Since 2011 he is affiliated with Photonic Integration group at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and from 2015 also with Photonic Integration Technology Center (PITC) in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. His duties cover research and development of photonic integration technologies and on-chip laser systems for sensing applications, standardization and automation of test, assembly and packaging processes for production of photonic integrated circuits. He is actively contributing to technology roadmaps for integrated photonics (IPSR-I in US and WTMF in Europe). Sylwester is a senior member of IEEE and IEEE Photonics Society.
