Matchmaking Event: Digitalisation and industrialisation for more sustainable construction


Anno 2024, building and renovation in Belgium is still a, mainly, manual affair. Although some initiatives are popping up here and there, digitalisation in the construction sector is still in its infancy. EnergyVille and Flanders Make are therefore joining forces and working with Buildwise, Embuild and Agoria to develop extensive cooperation with the construction sector. This matchmaking event is a first step in that.


Then join us on 24 September at Thor Park in Genk and take part in this matchmaking event.

Please not this is a free event but registration is required.

This event will be held in Dutch.
