Dear cleantech colleagues,

The list of sponsors and companies lending their support to the EU Cleantech Forum in Antwerp is now looking really impressive. We are currently in the process of creating an attractive programme together with these partners. The sponsors include: BNP Paribas Fortis, BP Ventures, Capricorn, Chubb, City of Antwerp, DEME-DEC, Derbigum, DNCP, EIT KIC InnoEnergy, ENGIE, Exypnos, Finindus with ArcelorMittal, GE, Harsonic, Indaver, InOpSys, Oleon, PMV, Port of Antwerp and Solvay. The theme is going to be “Next-Gen Industries and Future Industrial Hubs: Decentralized, Decarbonized and Digitalized”, which we are anticipating will attract attendees from all over Europe and beyond. We will once again be giving a number of companies the opportunity to speak, and we will once again be providing an overview. We recommend prompt registration, since places are, of course, limited for some of the peripheral events such as the Gala Dinner in the new law courts.

We asked the City of Antwerp to write the 'inspiring case' for this newsletter: after all, we have a unique way here in Antwerp of combining a high level of industrialisation (the highest in Europe), a circular economy and digitalisation. Our Flemish cleantech has also once again achieved success in other countries. Five companies were selected to represent VITO-FCA at the WFES event in Abu Dhabi. You can read all about their experiences in this newsletter. 

Finally, over two hundred Chinese companies had the opportunity to learn about our Flemish cleantech power during the FIT/FCA/VITO Cleantech Roadshow, which called at four cities on the east coast of China. Over four seminars, FCA introduced them to the seven companies in its ‘portfolio’. You can learn about what they gained from it in this newsletter. One Chinese company has already arranged to come to Flanders in March to meet staff at Enprotech. We are also planning another roadshow in December of this year.

Happy reading!

Carine Van Hove
Managing Director FCA
