Report of the online SME committee of 10 March 2022

Blue Cluster considers it important that our members and partners know each other well, as this is a healthy basis for setting up possible collaborations. In 2022, we want to continue working on this, which is why we will provide various physical activities for our SMEs to network and share knowledge.

On 10 March 2022, an online meeting of the SME committee took place. The meeting was opened by Koen Geirnaert (chairman) and Niko Fierens (vice-chairman), who gave a brief introduction to the functioning of the committee.

Next, some SME members were given the opportunity to briefly present themselves, give an example of innovation in their organisation and explain what they have to offer to the Blue Cluster network.

The following eight small and medium-sized enterprises were featured.

  • Comate;
  • Didak Injection;
  • Holiday Suites;
  • Kapernikov;
  • Kaayman;
  • Mantis Consulting; and
  • Victrol Chartering.

Want to get to know these SMEs in more detail? Check out the presentations these companies used to present themselves.


It was an interesting exchange with many fascinating discussions and links. This ensured that time passed quickly. We therefore plan to organise follow-up actions in the near future.
