Frank graduated in Chemistry at the Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium in 1983 and obtained his PhD in 1988 (Molecular Dynamics and Spectroscopy lab of Prof. F. De Schryver). After 1 year of military service (obliged at that time) he started working at Agfa-Gevaert in the former Electrophotography group, exactly 25 years ago now. He soon joined the Analytical department, and that is where he still is today. He has been responsible for the Physicochemical and Colloïdal analysis labs. In 2010 he was asked to represent Agfa's open innovation initiative Agfa-Labs that is offering its R&D services to third parties. Focus is on materials and coatings research, fields where we have acquired certain unique competences that can bring added value to small and large companies in an industrial environment.
