Flanders Make is the strategic research centre for the manufacturing industry. We have establishments in Lommel and Leuven and work together in a structural way with the research departments of the five Flemish universities.
We support both SMEs and large manufacturing companies with industry-driven and precompetitive research in the field of mechatronics, methods for developing products and technology for manufacturing them. In this regard, product, process and knowledge development are inextricably linked to one another. By doing do, we want to contribute to new products and processes that help to realise the vehicles, machines and factories of the future.
Our goal? Realising a top-level research network in Flanders that delivers full support to the innovation projects of manufacturing companies. We do so by enabling companies and research institutions to work together on such strategic innovation projects.
The result is open innovation and mutual cross-fertilization. We contribute to smarter products made with smart production technology. This way, we support the Flemish manufacturing industry to increase its competitive strength. We also attach great importance to international cooperation and participate in European research projects.
Our results? Concrete product and process innovations in the vehicle industry, mechanical engineering and production environments. For a comprehensive overview of our results, check www.flandersmake.be/results
