Ce dernier est notamment composé de représentants industriels et académiques:


He is a full professor at the Faculty of Engineering of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). He chairs the Applied Physics and Photonics Department and is director of its photonics research group, which he built over the years and which today counts about 50 scientists, engineers, and administrative and technical staff. He graduated as an Electrotechnical Engineer with majors in Applied Physics in 1984 and received his PhD in Applied Sciences in 1990, both at the VUB...es and related Nanotechnologies

Sylvain ALLANO

Earned a PhD in electrical engineering from the University of Paris South XI and a PhD in applied physics from the University Pierre & Marie Curie (UPMC).

He has been initially a junior researcher at the CNRS (the French National Scientific Research Center) and since 1989, a full-time professor at the Ecole Normale Superieure de Cachan. He has been a director of a research lab (SATIE) in electrical engineering and applied physics, and from 2006 to 2009, a deputy scientific director at the CNRS, in charge of the domains of electronics, nanotechnologies, photonics, and electrical engineering.

Since 1988, he has been an intellectual property consultant and since 1996, a patent attorney. He co-founded in 1992 an intellectual property consulting firm. He is also an inventor and promotor for new airship concepts and technologies.
