The interest in digital isn’t limited to the screen of the latest smartphone or computer, far from it. Digital innovations can also have a positive effect on everyone’s lives.
Whether by an entrepreneur or a researcher, the projects on display at the Lab are all aimed at improving a tangible aspect of our daily lives, from your golf swing to the design of a custom-made prosthesis outside of large medical centres.

Le Pavillon Namur Sunrise
For this first phase of Le Pavillon pop-up, the Lab invites you to discover the Augmented Human. How can innovation contribute to the autonomy of people with disabilities (with Soline) or improve our learning (with Swinguru) ? How can innovation improve our health? For example, thanks to research in the field of digital medical technologies, there are now discrete, non-invasive, and quality solutions, offering you sleep analysis (with Sunrise) or pregnancy analysis (with Bloomlife), just as effective as a battery of hospital tests.
While technology will never replace the advice and diagnosis of a healthcare professional, innovation creates tools that make life easier for healthcare providers. For example, the 3D printers of the African ORTHOLABS allow the creation of hand and leg prostheses with outstanding precision, as close as possible to patients’ needs.
The Lab also reveals the development of projects and their prototyping process within FabLab. By explaining how these men and women can be supported in their creative phases, Le Pavillon hopes to show that it is possible to undertake and - who knows - arouse some vocations.
