Accelerating the implementation of digital technologies in cities, ports and industries is one of the core objectives of The Beacon. In order to foster sustainable opportunities for our tech companies, The Beacon organizes four thematic weeks every year, such as this Smart Industry Week.

This Week is organized in full collaboration with Catalisti, the R&D Spearhead Cluster for the chemical and plastics industry. Together, we have defined a snappy one-day program that provides multiple opportunities for tech and chem companies to meet and foster relations.
