Short Profile Description• Funding: we finance innovative projects of companies, research centres, organizations and individuals through assignments set by the Flemish Government. In 2008, we paid out 297 million euros to Flemish innovative projects. • Advice and services: we support all Flemish companies and research centres. We help them during their applications, we provide technological advice during their innovative projects. We act as the national contact point for European funding programmes and we assist them in transferring their technologies throughout Europe via the Enterprise Europe Network. • Co-ordination and networking: we stimulate collaboration by bringing innovative companies and research centres in contact with Flemish intermediate organizations that stimulate innovation. We do this via the Flemish Innovation Network (VIN?), established by IWT.
