Antwerp stands for innovation

If you’re looking for an international and vibrant community where innovation and creativity underpin the urban fabric, then look no further. Antwerp is a multicultural melting pot, where the city’s historic urge to innovate has made it the gateway to one of the world’s most prosperous regions.

This friendly (and fashionable) place is home to highly innovative businesses, more than 180 nationalities and a thriving cultural scene. Today, the city is stepping up its game with digital innovation, circularity and creativity forming the pillars on which its future economy is built.

No wonder that this international metropolis is home to Europe’s second largest port and the continent’s number one integrated chemical cluster.

The largest chemical companies in the world have a production site in Antwerp. One out of three companies in Belgium that focuses on clean technology is located here, making the city a frontrunner in sustainable chemistry.

Local government, research institutions and large chemical companies work closely together on sustainable innovation that results in global impact.

Antwerp won the specialism award for chemicals at the fDi Strategy Awards 2020 referring to the strong focus on sustainable chemistry.
