DataBeers Brussels no.5

Our 5th edition of DataBeers Brussels took place on 18 January 2018 at Muntpunt in Brussels. DataBeers is a free event (including the beers!), however registration is mandatory. A central part of each meeting is a selection of short (<7min) and entertaining talks about data in a relaxing environment while having some beers.


  • 19:30 – We open the doors (and beers!)
  • 20:00 – The talks start
  • 21:30 – After the talks we move downstairs to MuntPunt Grand Cafe for more beers and networking


  • Ellie D’Hondt from iMec on “Making health data valuable”
  • Michael Gillon (University of Li├Ęge), one of the The 100 most influential people in 2017 by TIME magazine, on “How to detect extraterrestrial life with some Trappist beer and speculoos?”
  • Genevieve Quek from UCLouvain on “Brain waves and periodicity: Finding signal in the noise”
  • Gautier Krings who will tell us how to “Simulate all the things”


DataBeers is a recurring event to bring people together to talk about any and all aspects of data in a relaxed environment lubricated with some beers. It started 3 years ago in Madrid and has since grown and spread to more than 18 cities around the world.
