Funding from the regional and Belgian governments
The Flemish, Walloon and Brussels Governments encourage companies in their respective regions to put innovation at the core of their business in order to help boost the economy. With grants for research and development, the Flemish Agency for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (VLAIO), the Walloon SPW Économie, Emploi, Recherche and the Brussels Innoviris support organisations to successfully develop their innovative ideas. These grants help fund innovations in the relatively short term, which are result-oriented and contain a clear innovation-driven business case, or projects with a long-term vision, which require applied research and new knowledge acquisition. In addition, at national level the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO) stimulates fundamental scientific research and strategic research with an economic finality.
