The Krook is a creative district in the center of Ghent. It houses the public library, Ghent University, imec and a wide range of partners who collaborate on projects related to (social) innovation, technology and business.
During this summer, we open our doors to creatives, hackers, artists, and anyone who is interested to learn more about the technology "behind the scenes". There is a dedicated "Kraak de Krook" Lab, hosted by Lab 9K where you can work on your project, get coaching, and meet the other participants.
The Krook is outfitted with indoor positioning beacons and sensors developed by imec. Along with many other pieces of technical infrastructure these provide the perfect opportunity to develop and test the wildest applications in a large-scale public setting.
We provide detailed documentation on the position and use of the beacons, along with dedicated coaching in the Lab space.
