Why become a member?
As a member of Flanders Make, you’ll have access to a research group of over 650 engineers, scientists and researchers who help you to develop your innovation trajectory. You will also have priority access to the results of our research projects and be among the first to know what is going on and which subjects will dominate tomorrow's research agenda.
1. One contact person
As a member you will have one contact person assigned to you. This person will act as your eyes and ears on the ground and will:
- provide you with relevant information from research that may be of interest to your company;
- invite you to participate in research projects and plan them according to the needs and at the pace of your organisation;
- help you to find your way around the many different grants offered by Flemish, Belgian and European authorities;
- always gear our services to your specific needs.
2. Join Flanders' Manufacturing Industry's finest
Over 130 companies, both big and small companies and start-ups, have already joined us. Together with the knowledge institutions in our network, they form a unique innovation network. We regularly bring together all these companies and organisations during our member events.
Furthermore, you’ll also enjoy discounts on lots of events, workshops and other activities that we organise throughout the year.
3. Exclusive access to our cluster consortium
Our research is structured around four major themes or competence clusters. As a member, you can choose to join a cluster consortium.
In that capacity, you will – together with other companies and research institutions – guide our research from the front row. You will co-define the content of SBO or ICON projects or infrastructure projects, and are among the first to validate the results on a business case. This will enable you to insert critical research topics for your company into the Flanders Make technology research road mapping, consequently ensuring you that these are prioritized during the definition of research projects executed by our researchers, aligned with European partners and organizations.
