We offer them financial funding, advice and a network of potential partners in Flanders and abroad. We also support the Flemish Government in its innovation policy. 

FUNDING TOOLS

FLEMISH REGION - VLAIO supports collaboration in innovation

Collaboration is an important aspect of Flemish innovation policy. Collaboration enables companies and knowledge centres to tackle common technological issues efficiently. It also allows them to develop their internal know-how.VLAIO offers funding and advice to any form of collaboration that supports innovation.
