Mission/Objectives: 

GreenWin, sustainable innovation accelerator!

Innovation Clusters are one of the major tools used to back up and renew the economic development of Wallonia, through public-private partnerships between companies, universities, research centres, training centres and public authorities. Their goal is to support innovation and to encourage the development of collaborative projects in issues such as  Research & Development or investment and training. They aim at company growth and jobs creation, on niche markets.

As a catalyst of innovation in environmental technologies,  GreenWin enables the development of technological projects and partnerships, focusing on three priority sectors: green chemistry, sustainable construction and environmental technologies.

Biobased chemistry, energy storage and management, eco-districts, wastewater treatment, soil remediation and waste recycling are all key areas for the Cluster.
