Two main types of clusters
As part of its official cluster policy, Flanders has launched various innovative business networks. These networks aim to create a dynamic within a group of companies, and are expected to implement a concrete action plan:
- by fostering intense cooperation between the participating companies
- resulting in demonstrable economic added value.
Local clusters with global potential
Putting Flanders’ spearhead clusters on the global map is a keygoal of Flanders Investment &Trade, as part of ‘VlaanderenVersnelt’ or ‘FlandersAccelerates’. This refers to the official internationalization strategyaimed at promoting the region’s global potential in five main domains:
