New ICT Manager and Event and Communications Officer

Johan van der Heide & Anneke Bekx

We are very pleased to announce that Johan van der Heide and Anneke Bekx joined the ITEA Office team on 15 April and 3 June respectively. Johan is our new ICT Manager and he succeeds Bavo Janss, who will still be available in the ITEA Office on a part-time basis.

After finalising his PhD at the University of Leuven in 2009, for which the work was performed at imec in Belgium, Johan continued there as a researcher for 6 months. He then changed position internally to IT business partner, becoming the representative and contact point for ICT for more than 3 years.

Soon you can read about his initial impressions and plans on our ITEA 2 LinkedIn Group.

You can contact him, if you have any questions about any IT related issues, as the public and community website, the available tools etc.


Anneke Bekx has strengthened the Communications team and will be responsible for the event management related to our follow-up programme ITEA 3. In this task, she can put her event management experience fully into practice, as she used to be Event Coordinator at Ernst & Young until 2009 before becoming an entrepreneur and starting her own events management company ‘BekxEvents’. She really looks forward to meeting you at one of the events, so keep a close eye on our calendar to see what is coming up.

If you have questions about one of these events, please find her contact details here.

We welcome Johan van der Heide and Anneke Bekx to the ITEA Office and wish them success and happiness!
