Somewhere in Flanders, there is a place where they do things just that little bit differently. A place where new ideas grow and flourish, and where the wildest plans come together beautifully.
That place is called East Flanders, a playground for researchers and investors, for start-ups and entrepreneurs, and for anyone who wants to change the world. That is why East Flanders is widely known as an INNOVATION PLAYGROUND. Where business is not as usual.
The East Flemish economy is overflowing with innovation in various sectors. But we really excel at these six solid and robust clusters.
INNOVATION PLAYGROUND stimulates skills and competence development in these sectors and attracts (international) investments. The initiative provides a valuable network and the necessary infrastructure to ensure the optimal development of these clusters.
