It’s official: Google is bringing its "Google Digital Workshop" to Brussels on 26 April!
This new digital "hub" will be located in Brussels’ Central Station, where Be Central was located last year.
BeCentral, who already rent 2500m² over two floors, is an academic campus that groups together some 30 initiatives. These initiatives all aim to help and teach citizens about the digital world, whatever their age, training and professional background.
With more than 60,000 commuters who travel through it every day, Brussels’ Central Station is one of the country’s most used stations. The launch of Google’s Digital Workshop (or Atelier Digital in French and Digitaal Atelier in Dutch) coincides perfectly with the SNCB/NMBS’ strategy of aiming to use their stations to their full potential and make them more attractive.
The objective is to welcome at least 10,000 people and introduce them to the digital world. Google’s Digital Workshops have already helped some 40,000 people since 2016. With this initiative, Google hopes to contribute to the development of the Internet economy in Belgium.
