  1. 1. Internationalization and Smart Specialization @ DSP Valley (Flanders, Belgium) Dr.ir. Peter Simkens Managing Director peter.simkens@dspvalley.com
  2. 2. DSP Valley‘s Networking Mission• Mission – To stimulate new innovative partnerships, by offering a platform where potential partners can meet and match – To create a (technology) community, with mutual trust, where people are prepared to exchange ideas and to help each other, by exploiting technological complementarities – To facilitate interregional matchmaking and partnering• You can never know enough about your potential partners• You can never work together with somebody you don’t know!• Technology Network and Managed Cluster – focused on Design of Embedded Signal Processing Systems – offering synergy and complementarity in competencies – cooperative network for stimulation of innovation, supported by Institute for the Promotion of Innovation by Science and Technology (IWT) – Network founded as private initiative in 1996 by “Godfathers”: K.U.Leuven, IMEC and Philips Leuven – Where all participants have contractual relationships European Commission Enterprise and Industry 26.04.2012 2
