News & Events
In May 2007 the department EWI launched the magazine EWI Review. Every four months you received a unique view on economics, science and innovation. Now, we want to inform you about our decision to discontinue this project. All editions will remain available on www.ewi-vlaanderen.be/review.

The Belgian Presidency, together with the European Commission, holds today in Brussels a conference on building a Knowledge based Bio-Economy. The European bio-economy is estimated to be worth over € 2 trillion, employing around 22 million people, and the prospects for further growth are promising. Senior scientists, stakeholders and European and national policy makers take are discussing the drivers of the Bio-Economy and the research and innovation requirements to build the Bio-Economy.
The new EWI Review magazine n° 11 is now available. This time we put the spotlight on the Belgian EU presidency. The twelfth Belgian presidency of the European Union is now at the half-way stage. Within the framework of competencies agreed by the different Belgian governments, Flanders and the Flemish administration are playing an important role in this presidency. And so a Flemish star is shining brightly in the European firmament. By the same token, the European constellation is also helping to illuminate the path which Flanders needs to follow. Reason enough to give the Flemish contribution to the EU presidency – viewed in particular from the perspective of the EWI policy domain – a central place in this edition of the EWI Review.
The new EWI Budget Browser is now available. This time again, we present a transparent overview of the credits allocated by the Flemish government in 2010 to the Economy, Science and Innovation policy area, which the Flemish Government will use to pursue its policy.
The new EWI-Review magazine n° 10 is now available.
