Opening Science & Technology Office Munich

  • October 14, 2021

A month after his trip to Copenhagen, Minister-President Jan Jambon further strengthened his 'North Strategy' with a working visit to Munich on 13 and 14 October. In addition to diplomatic, cultural and economic contacts, he opened a brand new Science & Technology Office with a focus on Digital & Health Tech. The opening took place in the presence of Dr. Ulrike Wolf, Secretary General of the Bavarian State Ministry for Science, Media, Energy and Technology and Claire Tillekaerts, CEO of Flanders Investment & Trade (FIT).

To reach the top five of European innovative regions, marketing technology is a crucial link,” emphasizes Minister-President Jan Jambon. “It is therefore logical that we also open a Science & Technology Office in Germany – the first export market for Flanders and the fourth country of origin for investments – in addition to the FIT offices with economic representation in Berlin, Cologne and Stuttgart.

In addition, the Munich office also maintains commercial contacts outside of Germany, namely in Austria and Switzerland. With regard to Health Tech, this region also offers many cooperation, export and investment opportunities for Flanders.
