Invest in Ghent's CleanTech
Making the move from linear to circular
Ghent is on its way to becoming a continental hub for cleantech innovation. Our initially small cluster has grown into a network of pioneering cleantech players active in the fields of materials, energy, water and mobility. We’re constantly looking to fill knowledge gaps in our cleantech ecosystem and contribute to the industry as a whole, all the while striving toward our goal of making Ghent carbon neutral by 2050.
Taking our cleantech to the next level
We value participation, co-creation, living labs and other initiatives that engage a wide range of industries and institutions. Our academic and research centres regularly work with businesses big and small to form partnerships and create solutions together.
Space for Cleantech
In the Ghent region, there is still room for the expansion of industrial activities and for the growth of CleanTech. In Ghent, we are fans of the motto 'he who does not fail, does not try' and so in Ghent we not only make room for established companies but also leave room for experiments and failure.
