Thor Park

As a start-up, scale-up or established company with a focus on energy transition, smart manufacturing or smart cities applications, Thor Park is the campus of choice to establish your business. On the site, you will find an ecosystem of some 30 different and complementary companies on the one hand, and the expertise of leading European research on the other.


“We build the bridge between the academic world – the fundamental research – on the one hand, and the entrepreneur – the companies – on the other. Because if you want to bring the climate transition into reality, you have to roll out a commercial product. We call that the last mile between research and its valorisation.”

– Joris Merckx, Managing Director
