About us

Benefit from over 20 years of research from the UCLouvain laboratories (ELEN department, ICTEAM) and multiple collaborations, VOCSens is developing a new concept of environmental camera, EnviCam®, allowing to see the invisible, these chemical and biochemical molecules surrounding us. The company has developed a manufacturing process, CMOSEnvi™, fully compatible with the CMOS technology found in the electronic chips of our daily lives. Established in February 2019, it is based at Axis Parc, Mont-Saint-Guibert, Belgium, close to Louvain-la-Neuve Science Park.

VOCSens history

VOCSens is a spin-off from the SMALL research group, within the ELEN department, ICTEAM Institute, Université catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain), under the guidance of Prof. Laurent Francis, Prof. Denis Flandre & Prof. Jean-Pierre Raskin, with the support of the IMCN, including Prof. Sophie Hermans & Prof. Benoit Hackens. UCLouvain is one of the most prestigious universities in Europe and home to worldly recognized laboratories. It relies on a strong expertise based on more than 20 years research on CMOS-compatible environmental sensors development and characterization, including gas, temperature, humidity and pressure sensors, as well as the CMOS design of read-out interfaces.
