Electronics and Informatics (ETRO)

The Department of Electronics and Informatics (ETRO) - built on three research groups Micro- and Optoelectronics (LAMI), Speech & Audio Processing (DSSP) and Multidimensional Signal Processing & Communication (IRIS) - was established in 1971 and is part of the VUB Faculty of Engineering Sciences. As key industrial research pole - creator of four spin-off companies - and group of excellence in Fundamental Research, ETRO is a reliable partner for local and international industry, public services and hospitals. The multidisciplinary research group of more than 120 people gets inspired by unexplored engineering bottlenecks at the interface of various application domains: health care, automotive, media, surveillance, security, public safety, remote sensing, energy, telecommunications, creative industries...
