Sirris is the collective centre of the Belgian technological industry. We help companies in the implementation of technological innovations, enabling them to strengthen their competitive position over the long-term. In the Brussels Capital Region, Sirris has a competence centre in software engineering & ICT and a dedicated team of technology coaches. In the domain of software engineering & ICT, the main focus is helping companies to introduce "the art of making software and smart ICT products". In practice this means the Sirris specialists support companies in three complementary perspectives:
All of this is realized within a large international industrial network as well as in dense collaboration with several national and international knowledge partners. On the other hand, a dedicated team of Sirris technology coaches assist Brussels companies to develop their technology strategy. A specific industrial approach called "Mistral" has been developed for doing this. They help to make the right technological choices within the business context of the companies. For this the advisors make use of the most recent insights in technological roadmaps in combination with a profound insight in business strategy. This unique approach has already lead to remarkable and tangible results in terms of sustainable growth for the companies implied. Founded in 1949 by Agoria, the Belgian Federation for the Technology Industry, Sirris' mission has remained unchanged: increase the sector's competitiveness through technology and innovation. Every year 130 Sirris experts help around 1,800 companies from all areas of the Belgian technology industry, large and small, to implement technological innovations by researching new technologies, raising industry awareness of promising innovations, and providing advice at all decision-making levels and support from the initial concept to the operational solution. The organization's tailor-made services can range from a few hours of advise to research projects spanning months or years. Sirris develops knowledge in-house, but at the same time it keeps up with developments in other parts of the world. This gives its members and clients quick access to in-depth expertise in more than twenty fields, from Materials Engineering to Technology Coaching through Mechatronics and Software Engineering & ICT.
