The time has finally come: Flanders Make officially got going yesterday. Which is very good news for the manufacturing industry in our country. Companies in the manufacturing industry now have their own strategic research centre that combines and expands the resources and knowledge of FMTC, Flanders' DRIVE and the laboratories of the five Flemish universities. This initiative can support these companies by way of supporting pre-market surveys in order to reinforce their international competitive position. This is being done at the initiative of Agoria with the support from Sirris.
With renewed motivation and an even better (if possible!) solar vehicle, a new Groep T team will take a shot at first place in the World Solar Challenge in 2011. Once again, they will receive the support of the Belgian business community.
