Minister Jean-Claude Marcourt has decided to release almost 30 million euros for two new measures aimed at boosting the competitiveness of Walloon companies.
This will enable them, firstly, to cross the hurdle of prototyping, and also to improve working organisation within the enterprise (OP-IN).
The prototyping or experimental development consists of:
- conceiving prototypes or pilot installations
- testing them
- final tweaks before marketing
OP-IN is the measure aimed at helping companies who wish to extend their operation globally so as to improve their competitiveness.
