Collaboration opportunities between Belgium & Italy

Belgium and Italy have long understood that Bioeconomy and Sustainable Development are the necessary solutions to face societal challenges such as climate changes, local waste management and natural resources scarcity.
In that respect, both countries have developed proactive strategies in order to support the economic development of the Bioeconomy sector, respond to new trends in the sector and create the conditions to seize growth opportunities.
In addition to existing collaborations between Belgian and Italian companies and research centers through European programs, a MoU was signed in 2018 between Wallonia’s innovation cluster GREENWIN and the Italian cluster of green chemistry SPRING to promote bio-based economy, to collaborate in new international projects and to create new partnerships between industries and startups from both countries.
A conference within the context of a State Visit will allow Belgian and Italian academics, companies and SME’s to get a better knowledge of each other’s activities in this field and to discover new opportunities of collaboration or partnerships.
