About our host:
IRISIB a.s.b.l. is a Research Center associated with the HE2B (Haute Ecole Brabant Bruxelles) and more precisely with the HE2B technical department ISIB (Institut Supérieur Industriel de Bruxelles) which trains Masters students in the field of industrial engineering.
IRISIB’s missions are mainly research and long-life learning in the following fields: mechanics, computer science, electronics, electricity, chemistry and nuclear physics.
IRISIB has set up since 2015 the Research Laboratory in the fields of Arts and Sciences (LARAS), a research unit focusing on combining scientific and engineering research with the creativity of artists.
LARAS develops of wide range of demonstrators in the fields of mixed realities (virtual reality / augmented reality), showcased in its Mixed Realities room gathering about ten work stations. LARAS research and application ranges from control surfaces to the development of original and specialized hardware and software.
LARAS also has its own FabLab, with all the necessary equipments for design (laser engraver, computer numerical control milling machine) and rapid prototyping (3D printers, workshop), as well as a Studio dedicated entirely to image and sound design and processing.
