NCP Flanders and other support services

NCP Flanders is your contactpoint for all your questions regarding the implementation of the Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe programme. But there are also other services which give specific support and advice about the Framework programme.

If you are not located in Flanders

National Contact Point Flanders (NCP Flanders) fulfils its services towards stakeholders located in Flanders.

Since in Belgium NCP services are regionalised, there are 4 other NCP organisations responsible for other stakeholder groups:

NCP Brussels for enterprises and international organisations located in Brussels

NCP FNRS for universities of the French speaking community

NCP Federal, Eurofed, for the federal institutes

NCP Wallonie for the enterprises of the Walloon region.

Avia-GIS is a Belgian innovative SME established in 2001. They have built research and public authority trust over the past 19 years and developed a unique, disruptive software suite - VECMAP® - that will support society to overcome one of its important health threats, the spreading of Pests of Public Health importance.

With the help of a Horizon 2020 SME Instrument-phase 2 project, they will be able to add Integrated Pest Management (IPM) functionalities and bring VECMAP®IPM to the market. Within 5 years Avia-GIS will enable 2000 SME pest controllers and 2340 local authorities to shift to IPM strategies. With the grant they will raise revenue from 2 M€ to 14.2 M€ in 2024, and increase the headcount from 15 to 58.

The Horizon 2020 grant was an essential component of their second investment round. To date Avia-GIS already raised 1 M€ in additional private equity and they are now are seeking to complement this with an equal amount as a subordinate loan.
