CrossRoads Flanders-Netherlands
Supporting promising innovations across borders

CrossRoads Flanders-Netherlands is a project within the European program Interreg Flanders-Netherlands and stimulates cross-border cooperation between Flemish SMEs and southern Dutch SMEs. The project subsidizes product and process innovations that contribute to societal transition priorities: sustainable use of raw materials and energy, industry 4.0/digitization and healthcare.

Approachable support

Unfortunately, the network of small and medium-sized entrepreneurs still too often stops at the national border. With CrossRoads, Interreg Flanders-Netherlands, REWIN, de Brabantse Ontwikkelingsmaatschappij, VLAIO Team Bedrijfstrajecten, Economische Impuls Zeeland, LIOF and InnovationQuarter are giving the existing potential in the border region a big boost by supporting SMEs and SMBs in their search for the perfect partner across the border and subsidizing their joint innovations.

Addressing societal challenges

CrossRoads Flanders-Netherlands focuses on innovations aimed at social needs. The added value of the innovations for Flemish and Dutch people is central. The focus is on the social transition priorities that are at the top of the agenda in both member states:

  • Sustainable use of raw materials
  • Sustainable energy
  • Industry 4.0/Digitization
  • Healthcare

Background information

CrossRoads Flanders-Netherlands builds on the success of predecessors CrossRoads, CrossRoads2 and CrossRoads2 Sustainable Energy. Through those projects, dozens of innovations were realized by 'couples' of Flemish and Dutch companies, and the Flemish-Dutch border in terms of innovation was thus already partly demolished. In CrossRoads2 alone (2016-2020), in which 202 companies participated in 118 innovation projects, the total investment of €7 million in subsidies led to an economic added value of an estimated €16 million per year! CrossRoads2 Sustainable Energy delivered an estimated CO2 reduction of 375,000 tons of CO2 for the period 2023-2027.
