Interest/importance/role in North-CCU-Hub
By being an active partner in the North-CCU-Hub consortium, the Development Agency East-Flanders wants to help develop this new industrial cluster on East Flemish territory. We have experience in stimulating cross-sector links between companies and we are acquainted with industrial symbiosis. In addition to this role as a facilitator, we also see a role for ourselves in financially participating in pioneering projects, in which, as a neutral government party, we create trust regarding market parties/actors through our targeted investments. We aim to develop the CCU hub into a strong ecosystem with sustainable triple helix partnerships, which endorses both the economic and ecological ambitions of our region.
