The region
DSP Valley was started in 1996, as a private initiative co-founded by a number of local nanotechnology startups, Philips, imec and K.U.Leuven. In 2005, DSP Valley started a crossborder extension from the Leuven region in Flanders/Belgium to the Eindhoven region in the southern Netherlands, supported by Philips Research and TU/Eindhoven.. When The Beacon was started in Antwerpen as an initiative to bolster regional IoT technologies, DSP Valley stepped on board. With a smart city partner at the Corda Campus and life science partner in Ghent, we are well positioned to cover a sizeable chunk of the Benelux area.
