Innovfest Vlaanderen

October 24 | 13:00 - 19:00

Flanders has seven sectors that are strategically important for the region: logistics, food, healthcare, energy, materials, chemicals and marine. For each sector, one cluster was recognised as a unique focal point.

7 different clusters, 1 common goal: bringing innovation to companies!

Clusters are the indispensable link in the innovation landscape as facilitators, matchmakers, influencers, grant advisers, bridge builders, need detectors, project implementers and knowledge sharers.

During Innovfest, you will be immersed in a world of change, facilitated by the spearhead clusters and realised by the Flemish business world. The entire ecosystem is covered.

Come to Technopolis Mechelen on 24 October. Expect an afternoon of networking with entrepreneurs, an inspiring keynote, an interactive debate and a demo hall full of showcases of innovative Flemish projects.
