At the walloon level

In particular at the walloon level, this approach is supported in the framework of scientific support projects.
  • MATECDUR – Sustainable technical materials
    Development and/or improvement of high performance techical materials such as : ceramics, rocks and minerals, cement phases, polymers, textiles, paper/carton and flat products.
  • VALOWALL – VALOrisation of industrial waste and improvement of contaminated soils and landfills in WALLonia
    Prevention,development of new processes, improvement of existing processes, matter and/or energetic valorisation, inerting, life cycle assessment.
  • AVATAR – AdVanced Assembling Technologies and Additive manufacturRing
    Innovative production and assembling technologies : through additive manufacturing technologies (SLS/SLM, SLA, EBM, laser cladding, …) or welding (FSW, EBW, ARW, …), or a combination of both.

At the belgian level

This approach is also supported at the belgian level (federal) through standardization.
