VITO works closely together with companies, governments, universities and other research institutions, both in Belgium and abroad. This leads to various common international research programmes, publications and communications at international conferences and symposia. VITO also plays an active role in European research programmes such as FP7, Horizon 2020 and Life but also in a national, interregional or regional setting VITO is part of specific research programmes. In this way, VITO brings the most authoritative scientific position of Flanders into the entire European knowledge economy. Besides all this, VITO carries out its own strategic research in different technological fields.
