The Link2innovate project aims to establish cross-border cooperation projects between young technology companies and establish companies and organisations in the border region between Flanders and the Netherlands.
The project focuses on smart applications for key technologies of the future. For example, microelectronics, nanoelectronics, photonics, nanotechnology, advanced materials, industrial biotechnology and advanced fabrication systems and processes.
Through coaching and collaboration, the project also aims to help SMEs in this border region defy the so-called 'valley of death' and bring products and services to the market faster and more efficiently. Experimental development, such as prototyping, demonstrations and pilot development, ensures that a product or service has the 'oxygen' it needs to evolve successfully. Both companies can request coaching too.
