Take part in projects

To increase the competitiveness of Flemish logistics companies, VIL carries out projects on Collective Knowledge Development and Knowledge Transfer (COOCK). ‘Collective’ means that the project is aimed at a group of companies. 80% of the project cost is subsidised, 20% is financed by the participating companies.

In addition, VIL also focuses on innovative business projects (research and development projects), multidisciplinary research projects, strategic basic research and EU projects (Horizon Europe).
