GETTING TO THE CONFERENCE VENUE

By public transport

Gent is easily accessible by train. There are direct connections to the city’s main station (Gent-Sint-Pieters) from Brussels, Antwerp, Leuven and Liège at least once per hour.

There are two tramlines one can take from Gent-Sint-Pieters to reach the conference venue. Tram 4 leaves from directly in front of the station and should be taken in the direction “Gentbrugge-Moscou”. Alternatively, one can also take Tram 1 in the direction “Evergem”. Tram 1 can be found close to the bus stops (to the left of the train station when leaving from the front entrance). In both cases your tram journey will take around 15mins and you should get off at the stop “Rabot”, which is only a 2min walk from the Technologiecampus.
