Belgian Advanced Manufacturing Technologies (203)
The “Belgian Advanced Manufacturing Technologies” publication, realised in cooperation with the FPS Foreign Affairs, Flanders Investment & Trade (FIT), the Wallonia Export & Investment Agency and hub.brussels, focuses on the new trends of the industrial sector and its innovative technologies. Advanced manufacturing technologies are reshaping industries and responding to some challenges and trends that the sector is facing. Belgium, thanks to dynamic industrial actors and a friendly innovative environment, is taking part in the new revolution Industry 5.0.
The first part of this publication provides a comprehensive picture of the advanced manufacturing sector in Belgium. The second part provides 12 interviews of Belgian innovative companies active in this sector. The third part presents various stakeholders active in the advanced manufacturing sector from sectoral federations to public institutions which are supporting the industry.
