All other fields will be taken into account, whether in the human sciences, fundamental or applied.
What are the Walloon competitiveness clusters?
The Competitiveness Clusters, which bring together companies around a promising economic sector (see above), constitute a major economic asset for the development of Wallonia. This is made concrete by the creation of synergies around an innovative economic project stimulated by companies, training or research-innovation centres.
If the research theme is similar to one of the above, WBI will forward the file to the Clusters for their opinion.
We urge you to visit www.poles.be to find out about the activity of each cluster and to check if your research project could be in line with one of them.
