Flanders Smart Hub
The ‘triple helix’ cooperation between businesses, government and knowledge institutions has a positive impact on the entrepreneurial climate in the region.
The Flanders Smart Hub project has been established to further strenghten the capabilities of Flemish Brabant and stimulate innovative entrepreneurship.
The focus of Flanders Smart Hub is on three sectors that excel in scientific and technological know-how and have enormous economic potential:
- Lifetech: pharmaceutical industry, medical devices, red biotech, functional feed and food industry, healthcare and healthcare prevention applications
- Cleantech: energy and environment
- Logistech: transport, logistics and supply chain management
In each of these sectors the aim is to group the dynamic players into clusters. This implies as well the organization of informal networking activities as the initiation and development of communities and the set-up of genuine partnerships between businesses and research institutions.
The project is supported by the European Fund for Regional Development (EFRO), the Hermes Fund of the Flemish Government, the Province of Flemish Brabant and the POM Flemish Brabant.
