VISION ON TECHNOLOGY

VITO (Flemish Institute for Technological Research) is a leading European independent research and consultancy centre in the areas of cleantech and sustainable development, elaborating solutions for the large societal challenges of today.

Sustainable chemistry, energy, health, materials management and land use: these are the five topics VITO focuses on. These topics have been set out in five research programmes. They offer an answer to the challenges that mankind and society are confronted with today and in the future. Each programme builds up a strong base of knowledge and skill, with added value for industry and society. The result is new and innovative research and a comprehensive range of scientific services.

In VITO’s five areas of expertise, a societal transition is taking place or is urgently needed. Smart grids, intensive re-use of resources, a bio-based economy, all these developments require new and better sustainable technologies, as well as a change in mindset. That’s why VITO is working hard on sustainability and transition thinking as binding factors between the five research programmes.

VITO supplies innovative and high-quality solutions, whereby large and small companies can gain a competitive advantage, and provides policy support to industries and government agencies. VITO has more than 700 highly-qualified employees from various specialisms and collaborates with sector federations and their research centres, universities and other European research institutes.
