Technical Committee

The research decree published on July 3, 2008, defines the conditions and modalities for Walloon Research Centre accreditation. It states the Research Centre mission, which is to perform general industrial research that can be transferred to industry according to expressed needs and specificities.

In particular, the decree mandates the Research Centre conducts collaborative industrial research that is general enough to be of interest to companies with similar requirements.

The Centre’s areas of research are determined by these needs, coupled with the typology of the Walloon Region, under the guidance of a technical committee composed of representatives of corporations and industries.

In order to align research activities with industry needs, the Research Centre has set up a permanent technical committee in charge of validating the R&D strategy.
