Let's start new business
The ESA Business Incubation Centre (BIC) Flanders in Belgium was founded in 2012 and is managed by Innotek, the knowledge centre for innovation and technology in the Province of Antwerp.
Collaborating with local partners, the scientific expertise of these institutions complement the start-ups’ technical development in the fields of electronics, nanotechnology, telecommunications, navigation systems, nuclear science, bio-engineering, radiology, life science, and Earth observation.
ESA BIC Flanders start-ups are hosted at Innotek's two technology houses, one in Geel and the other one in Mol, with offices and laboratory space for entrepreneurs.
