Call for inter-regional projects between Flanders, Brussels and Wallonia

Call for inter-regional projects between Flanders, Brussels and Wallonia

On September 28th in Edegem, the Flemish and Walloon competitiveness clusters for green chemistry, Catalisti and GreenWin, organized a joint event during which a double historic Memorandum of Understanding was signed by the organizers but also by the three regional administrations of the country. The aim is to stimulate and facilitate industrial innovation in the fields of sustainable chemistry and plastics between Flanders, Brussels and Wallonia.

As part of this agreement, the three regions are launching a call for collaborative innovation projects between at least two companies from two different regions. This call covers various innovation project funding programs for companies funded by VLAIO, Innoviris and DG06. Three types of projects are possible:

1.   Collaboration between individual companies in at least two of the three regions;
2.   Collaboration between a regional cluster project from Catalisti with, as an additional partner, one or more individual companies from another region.
3.   Collaboration between a regional cluster project from Greenwin with, as an additional partner, one or more individual companies from another region.
All three types of projects are supported by Catalisti and Greenwin.

Deadline for submission to Call 1: 28.01.2019
Deadline for submission to Call 2: 29.04.2019

The location of the coordinator, the type of partnership and the funding rate define, among other things, the type of program to be solicited. To help you better in determining the best type of financing, contact your clusters. Contact person for Catalisti: tschaerlaekens@catalisti.be
