    What are the consequences of the Green Deal for Belgium’s energy system?

    Date :

    “Flexibility” and “The role of hydrogen, green gas and other molecules in Belgium”: these were the topics of the two round tables organised this year as part of the Prime Foundation Partnership with KPMG. To conclude the three-year partnership, and in anticipation of a further collaboration, Professor Leonardo Meeus and Jorn De Neve, Partner, Head of Advisory and Head of the Energy Sector at KPMG, look back on their work.

  2. “Connect society through a sustainable multi-utility network”

    Date :

    How can we manage our physical assets sustainably? How can we tap into the circular economy? How can we link the distribution of electricity and gas to that of other utilities like drinking water? And how can we introduce new technologies such as blockchain? Together with Vlerick, Chair Partner Fluvius is embarking on an ambitious research project with one goal in mind: mastering the supply chain game to guarantee utility traffic that is sustainable, affordable and also future-proof.

  3. “How can we keep energy distribution manageable for consumers and the environment?”

    Date :

    Distribution system operator Fluvius will be continuing the DSO Chair at the Energy Centre with Vlerick for another five years. “Vlerick makes us take a critical look at ourselves, and that makes sense. After all, no single energy player has all the answers to the question of how we can keep energy distribution manageable for consumers and the environment.” Professor Leonardo Meeus and Donald Vanbeveren (Corporate Affairs Director at Fluvius) talk about this renewed commitment.

  5. The public sector: the natural home for vested digital leadership

    Date :

    Today, the government has to rein in a health crisis on the one hand, and has to compensate for its economic impact on the other. The crisis is acting as a catalyst on top of the evolution that the sector is going through, a transformation that should serve to make the respective organisations in the sector proactive, agile machines in which new digital and organisational models play a key role. In the midst of this transformation, the need for vested digital leadership is greater than ever. LoQutus and Vlerick Business School have joined forces to explore the way in which the public sector is experiencing the changes, how it is tackling them, and where the main obstacles lie.

  6. “Ambitious and entrepreneurial people. That's what we’re both aiming for”

    Date :

    “Just like De Tijd and L’Echo, Vlerick encourages entrepreneurs to remain inquisitive and, in a well-informed way, to take the lead and keep trying new things. So, it's not that we have to but that we want to do things together; we share the same ambitions. For us, these are the best partnerships”, says Isabel Albers, General Editor of the business newspapers De Tijd and L’Echo.

  7. On your marks! Digital strategy sprint in one week

    Date :

    How can Paradise City Festival combat cup pirates using digital tools? This was just one of the challenges our students had to find a solution to during the digital strategy elective. Organised as a one-week “sprint”, it had the support of Vlerick’s Professor Arne Buchwald and seasoned Accenture coaches.

  8. The power of ecosystem thinking within the government

    Date :

    Government bodies are in the midst of a digital transformation. But the design of new solutions often gets no further than merely the technical level. “If government bodies still want to be relevant in five years’ time, they will need the courage to set the bar higher and act as choreographers within their own ecosystem”, says Vlerick Professor Stijn Viaene. But what does it mean to take on the role of a choreographer? That is what we will be investigating with LoQutus over the next two years.

  9. “Entrepreneurship born of necessity”

    Date :

    From 11 to 16 November, 40 iGMO members headed to South Africa for their annual inspiration field trip. Their aim was to take a step back from their own companies for a while and acquire some food for thought, both from academic lectures at our partner institution Stellenbosch University, and from visits to local entrepreneurs in the townships. Professor Hans Crijns: “Here, entrepreneurship is born of necessity, but at the same time it expresses something incredibly hopeful.”
