Welcome to Limburg: the knowledge region of Belgium
After the closure of the mines and certain industries in Limburg, breeding grounds were created where creativity and knowledge come together, where start-ups get chances and innovative ideas are stimulated. Limburg transformed from a manufacturing industry to a knowledge and innovative economy.
The knowledge areas of Limburg can be subdivided into four strong spearheads:
We see these spearheads in the various incubators and campuses within Limburg, but also within the faculties and schools of Hasselt University (U-Hasselt) and PXL.
Within the four spearheads the Belgian Limburg Convention Bureau (BLCB) has a good overview of the knowledge institutes and local actors in the region. For the local knowledge institutions and the international associations, the BLCB is there to help them to organize a congress in Limburg.
