Digital Wallonia, digital strategy of Wallonia

Adopted in 2015, the Digital Wallonia plan marks the Walloon Government's wish to do its utmost to make Wallonia a connected and intelligent territory where technological companies are leaders recognised on a global level and a driving force for successful industrial mutation and where digital innovation is at the service of the quality of education, the openness of public services and the well-being of citizens.

Plan's themes and objectives

This ambition is structured around five major themes organised into strategic objectives and development lines that form a global platform which should help to initiate and establish in the long term the digital transformation of Wallonia.

The Wallonia Export-Investment Agency's (AWEX) digital actions

In order to speed up the internationalisation of start-ups, but also the digitalisation of the Walloon economy, AWEX has increased the number of actions targeting the digital sector. For 2017, 20 actions are planned as well as the creation of a network of "Digital Wallonia" hubs around the world. Two of them have already been identified in San Francisco and Barcelona. Ultimately, the network should comprise ten hubs.
In practical terms, AWEX's commercial attachés in position in these "hubs" will be asked to accompany Walloon start-ups in their internationalisation. AWEX's regional representatives will sit as "observers" in different bodies of the Walloon ecosystem (incubators, accelerators, etc.) in order to detect projects likely to cross borders as soon as possible.
