GreenWin projects, eligibility criteria

A "Competition Cluster" project is a collaborative and innovative project which brings together businesses, universities and research centres with a view to developing new, innovative products or services; projects should be of high added value, marketable and employment-generating. Cluster project submission takes concrete form through the calls for projects issued every year by the Government of Wallonia

Since the launch of the GreenWin Cluster in 2011, 23 projects have been approved, 19 research projects and 4 training projects, for a total sum of nearly 70 million &euros;.

Cluster projects include one or more sections: research, investment, training and external trade. For each section, extra aid is granted, up to 80% of subsidy in the case of an SME for a research project.

To be approved by the Cluster, projects must have a link with environmental technologies and must correspond to the themes of the GreenWin Cluster.
