Innovation Performance

You innovate. We help you finance it.

The Europe 2020 Strategy aims to make the EU the most dynamic and competitive knowledge-based economic centre in the world and to achieve the target of investing 3% of the GDP in R&D. Therefore, stimulating R&D is a clear priority in Europe and therefore also in Belgium.

Our goal

The identification and justification of the R&D environment of projects is in our DNA. In order to finance the R&D from and for Belgian companies, we map your scientific environment globally and locally, no matter where the industries, production lines, the R&D centres or patents are.

By improving Innovation Performance, we make sure:

  • To maximise the use of available public finance support incentives, tax credits and fiscal deductions for innovation;
  • To promote participation in publicly co-funded collaborative R&D projects: public/private partnerships for SME’s/large corporations;
  • To enhance a company’s capacity to invest in R&D by the use of external financing.

What we do

The main incentive possibilities for innovation in Belgium is depending on various levels of implementation and are subject to complex conditions & procedures as well as frequent legislative changes. We support you with four types of incentives:

Financing innovation incentives coordination

  • Enhanced deduction for investments in R&D
  • Partial exemption on wage withholding tax for researchers
  • Grants & subsidies
  • Patent Income Deduction
