VITO is a leading international research centre. We focus on applied research and advice, bridging the gap between fundamental research and the industry.
We accelerate the transition to a sustainable world; we provide knowledge and technological innovations that facilitate this transition to a more sustainable society. We de-risk innovation for businesses and we strengthen the economic and societal fabric of Flanders, with interdisciplinary research and large-scale pilot installations. We do this in the field of energy, chemistry, materials, health technology and land use.
Every day, researchers at VITO work on ground-breaking technology solutions that help companies and policymakers find answers to the enormous challenges we face. Creative, innovative solutions based on a unique systemic approach. In this way, we open up new horizons and deliver greater impact.
VITO is a pacesetter in the transition to sustainability for companies and government. We advise and assist them in their search for workable solutions around the issues of today and tomorrow. Because only resilient organisations that think ahead and dare go off the beaten path will survive in the long term.
We don’t do this on our own. In today’s networked society, VITO fulfills its role as a connector like no other. Every day, we actively contribute to cross-pollination between companies, knowledge institutions, governments and citizens. The possibilities are endless. We integrate knowledge from different domains, across national borders. We are an international and multidisciplinary organisation that responds quickly to new challenges. In this way, we create shared value for people, companies and society.
