Jan studied mathematics in Antwerp and philosophy in London. He gained innovation policy experience as a senior researcher at the Flemish Council for Science and Innovation, which he applied, first as an advisor and later as deputy chief of staff to the Flemish minister for Innovation. Jan then went on to work for the research centre iMinds (which merged with imec in 2016), first as director Strategy & Innovation and later as vice-president Policy & Society.
