Moonshot Research Trajectories

Innovative research in Flanders will enable the development of breakthrough technologies by 2040 to create new climate-friendly products and processes.

Fortunately, Flanders does not have to start from scratch. Flanders has a strong knowledge base and an innovative industry that is already putting promising technologies into practice. The Moonshot initiative identifies five core competencies, or enablers, as specific strengths Flanders that can build on: conversion technology, separation technology, predictive technology, energy storage and energy transport.

Through these enablers, four closely connected Moonshot Research Trajectories (Moonshot OnderzoeksTraject or MOT) were initiated. In each MOT, innovative research concerning the MOT topic is pursued. Click on the images below to learn more about each MOT.
