Published 15 November 2013
In this edition of Business Planet the focus is on the relatively new concept of KETS. As the programme’s reporter, Serge Rombi, explains: “In this episode we’re in Ghent, in Belgium, where we’re looking at what’s known as ‘Key Enabling Technologies’ – fields such as nanotechnology and biotechnology.
They could help relaunch European industry. In order to succeed innovators have to know how to convert their knowledge and ideas into competitive products on the market. And that’s exactly what one small business here in Ghent is doing.”
