Standard membership

Do you want to make a difference as an innovation pioneer? If you are a standard member, Blue Cluster proactively identifies opportunities for your company and organises relevant matchmaking activities. We will reach out to you in case of calls and funding possibilities for innovation ideas so that you do not miss out on any opportunity.


Apart from freely available information on the website and our newsletters, you also get access to private activities and information such as webinars and thematic files. Every year we organise one event tailored to your specific needs. This may for example be a matchmaking session, a press conference or an info session on a particular topic.


As a standard member, you can send three representatives to our network events free of charge three times a year. These events are perfectly suited for making contact with other innovative companies, knowledge institutions and public bodies. If desired, you can send extra representatives or attend additional events at a surcharge.  

We furthermore organise a network lunch for our standard members in order to promote cross-fertilisation. In addition, standard members can be invited to the Steering Committee in case their presence is relevant towards the topic(s) at hand.


Your company is contacted directly in case of calls that cater to your company's areas of interest. Projects are monitored intensively by Blue Cluster. The membership fee includes the guidance fee (€ 1,190 after submission of a 10-pager, € 4,120 after approval by VLAIO; rates for 2024, excl. VAT) for one innovation project a year.

Companies who participate in a Blue Cluster project, whether in the capacity of a partner or as a member of the advisory board, are required to be a member of Blue Cluster for the entire duration of the project.
