Flanders Make wants to support the Flemish manufacturing industry so as to increase its international competitive strength. Today, tomorrow and in the long term. By doing so, we can keep companies in Flanders and at the same time attract foreign businesses.
We support both SMEs and large manufacturing companies with industry-driven, pre-competitive and excellent research in two application domains:
- Products: vehicles and machines
- Production: assembly
The result of our support? Concrete product and production innovations in vehicle industry, in mechanical engineering and in production environments. By contributing to the technological development of the vehicles, machines and factories of the future, we create added value for the manufacturing industry.
In the networks of companies, knowledge institutions and governments that we create for this purpose, we anticipate and tackle the challenges ahead. The created knowledge is shared in a dynamic, collaborative ecosystem that strenghtens everyone's competences.
In addition, Flanders Make attaches great importance to international cooperation in the field of innovation and participates in a number of European research projects.
