Agropolis Kinrooi

De land- en tuinbouwsector staat voor enorme uitdagingen. Het wereldwijde bevolkingsaantal neemt jaar na jaar toe, de rendabiliteit van de sector staat onder druk én op vlak van klimaat wordt de boer vaak met de vinger gewezen. Om een antwoord te bieden op deze uitdagingen, zal moeten gekeken worden in de richting van innovatie. 

Om de land- en tuinbouwer te inspireren en te stimuleren om die vernieuwing te gaan toepassen, werd Agropolis ontwikkeld. Agropolis heeft als doelstelling om innovatieve, duurzame en toekomstgerichte bedrijven te huisvesten op haar site, die uiteindelijk als belangrijke inspiratiebron voor de sector zullen dienen. Agropolis zal hierin de rol van facilitator op zich nemen, waarbij enerzijds bedrijven worden begeleid in de vestiging van hun activiteit en anderzijds wordt de link gelegd met de bestaande land- en tuinbouwsector. Op die manier ontstaan kruisbestuiving & kennisdeling, en krijgt de landbouwer van vandaag de kans om zich te wapenen voor de toekomst. 

Concreet worden een bedrijvenpark en netwerkfaciliteiten ter beschikking gesteld aan bedrijven die een eigen gebouw wensen op te richten. Onze incubator staat ter beschikking van startups en dienstverlenende bedrijven en is voorzien van de nodige accommodatie en begeleiding. Gelegen in het noordoosten van België en vlakbij de Nederlandse en Duitse grens, beschikt Agropolis over een unieke en centrale locatie in West-Europa.
