EIT Food

Willkommen! Bienvenue! Welkom!

What we do

Europe’s leading food innovation initiative, working to make the food system more sustainable, healthy and trusted.

CLC West is one of EIT Food Co-Location Centres, and was established in Leuven in 2017. Making sure that the food sector gets better, while stimulating others wanting to contribute as well is most important to us, that's why we combine our efforts with for instance other leading businesses, universities, research centres and institutes. This vast network consists of partners from Belgium, France, Luxembourg and Switzerland.

Our main focus is to provide a healthier lifestyle for citizens by enhancing high-value-added cooperation and integration in order to stimulate innovation, talent development and consumer involvement.

We are ready to revolutionise the food industry! Want to join us?
