Flanders Innovation and Entrepreneurship - Belgium


Flanders Innovation and Entrepreneurship




The agency Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship is the contact point for entrepreneurs in Flanders. We encourage and support innovation and entrepreneurship, and contribute to a favourable business climate.

We do this in close collaboration with local actors and supported by our international commitments in EUREKA, E.E.N. and H2020.


We focus on:

  • Stimulating growth and innovation

We support businesses through grants so they continue to grow, transform and innovate. Examples include the SME growth subsidy, SME innovation- and R&D-projects.


  • Promoting entrepreneurship

We work together with strong partners that assist SMEs through start, growth and takeover. We also encourage networking focused on growth companies.


  • Supporting clusters

We support organisations that catalyse cooperation and dynamics within a group of enterprises and knowledge institutions.


  • Improving environmental factors

We facilitate the development of industrial areas.

By being a one-stop-shop, we built a bridge towards stronger entrepreneurship.



In numbers (2016):

369 employees

513 million euro for grants
