Rob was listed by De Tijd in their special issue on 'tech pioneers'.
Introduction of the issue by De Tijd:
"The technology of the future can be alluring or frightening. Far-fetched it is not. In labs and companies around the world many are hard at work to make it a reality. De Tijd visited 50 Belgians who are building the technology of the future, as scientists, managers, entrepreneurs, artists or philosophers."
