Our Research

Our research serves one overall purpose: supporting product and production innovation within the Flemish manufacturing industry. That's why we perform industry-driven, pre-competitive technological research into the vehicles, machines and factories of tomorrow. As such, we stimulate the digital transformation of our companies – big and small.

Initially, this research leads to actual applications for companies (innovation leaders) participating in the research project.  Next, we also share results with the rest of the industry so that innovation followers can make the transition to Industry 4.0 as well.

This is how our research strengthens the competitiveness of the entire industry.

Three competence domains for successful digital transformation

Flanders Make’s expertise focuses on three domains. In each single one of them, modelling and virtualisation play an important part. These three domains have been translated into competence clusters in which companies, other research institutions and knowledge centres work together. To each of these competence clusters, a number of core labs have been assigned that perform concrete research projects.
