A word from our Board of Directors

The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic puts our society firmly to the test. First and foremost, we’re facing a major health crisis, including, in the short run, a potential lack of medical equipment, protective equipment and healthcare providers. Secondly, there is the economic crisis, which will continue to exist long after this pandemic has been controlled and represents a huge challenge for our companies. Think, for instance, of the application of social distancing rules in assembly cells. 

Driven by our social commitment and our mission to support the competitiveness of the Flemish industry, Flanders Make takes the lead in developing technological contributions to the fight against this pandemic and to the necessary digital transformation of the industry in Flanders.

That is why we, as the Board of Directors of Flanders Make, have taken the decision to free up 1 million euro so that our researchers can contribute to the development of technological solutions regarding this pandemic.
