Flanders' FOOD for

research institutes

Kennisinstelling icoon

How do we make a difference for knowledge institutes?


"Together we build the food of tomorrow"

“Together we are stronger and strengthen each other's strengths” 

“We are an independent company with loyal members and a long term vision”

We make a difference by:

  • Our ability to realise innovation projects from A to Z.
  • Increasing the impact of strategic research. We do this by:
    • Giving exposure to the knowledge and competences of our Flemish research institutes.
    • Organising events and publishing articles that reach a broad audience.
    • Accelerating the research ambitions of the agri-food ecosystem.
  • Acting as matchmaker between businesses and other innovative players and actors.
  • Providing access to a specific innovation budget for both strategic and more implementation-oriented research in cooperative and collective frameworks.
  • Our experienced, dynamic and driven team.
