A major activity of Cleantech Flanders is to inform on developments in the cleantech ecosystem for a multitude of domains: renewable energy, energy efficiency, bio-based and circular economy, mobility and transport, food and agro, sustainable materials, air, soil and water. Backed by a number of experts, Cleantech Flanders keeps you up to date with latest trends and evolutions in cleantech that we publish annually.

Cleantech Flanders continuously builds the Flemish cleantech community and offers a platform for promoting and stimulating innovation and accelerating implementation of clean technologies in society. Amongst others by overviewing the ecosystem, we can bring partners in touch with like-minded actors in our community.

Cleantech Flanders helps to upscale the cleantech business internationally of Flemish cleantech companies. It does so by representing the Flemish cleantech community abroad and by taking part in international events and trade missions, in many cases in collaboration with other actors like Flanders Investment&Trade.

To increase awareness about cleantech solutions, Cleantech Flanders introduced the first ‘Cleantech Heroes’ in 2021. Flemish companies within the network of Cleantech Flanders who develop and market innovative cleantech solutions can register to be selected as Cleantech Hero within their domain. The positive impact (in Flanders and beyond) of these cleantech companies must be clearly verifiable. The TRL level of their cleantech solution, the link to the SDGs and the company’s potential to be an ‘ambassador’ of the Flemish cleantech in Belgium and abroad are a few of the selection criteria to obtain the prestigious Cleantech Hero label. Companies that win the award, gain momentum during a whole year. The Cleantech Heroes can wear the label for a full year and receive promotional support through Cleantech Flanders channels. Permanent jury members of this election are Dirk Fransaer (CEO VITO), Frans Snijkers (Director Cleantech Flanders) and Claire Tillekaerts (CEO Flanders Investment & Trade). For each category of the Cleantech Hero the permanent jury will be assisted by a number of guest jury members with expertise in the specific domain.
