FARI Test & Experience Center
Brussels' window to the future of AI.

FARI Test & Experience Center is a public-oriented center that will allow citizens and organisations to test, experiment, and to ultimately understand what AI is and what it should be. This will be launched in January 2023.

We will soon provide services and facilities for different target groups in Brussels and beyond.

Experiences

Public and Private Research Laboratories

The Centre will soon display demos and prototypes from both non-commercial and commercial research institutes. We aim to help companies and research labs develop and improve their proof-of-concepts through workshops, trainings, and other services.

Government Institutions

Due to its prime location in Brussels, the Centre is well positioned to cater Brussels policymakers to explore smart cities’ solutions. The Centre aims to facilitate the implementation of Brussels-based projects and thus strengthening the collaborative efforts between researchers and Brussels' public administration.

Civic Organizations

The Centre will provide experience-oriented facilities including demos, prototypes, and workshops for the broader public. This aims to create an environment for technology testing and for stirring public discussions about the future of a trustworthy digital society.

AI, data, and robotics demos will soon be showcased in BeCentral
