A Belgium-based European Innovation and Research Centre VITO NV and Valluri Technology Accelerators has signed a technology and business cooperation agreement for an array of programs covering smart cities, clean technology, and environmental sustainability in India.

The two companies will offer their expertise on developing technological concepts and know how in the fields of energy, water, waste, pollution, healthcare and land use.

This is VITO’s  first formal entry into the country through an Indian business and technology partner. Dirk Fransaer, CEO, VITO said, “We are extremely glad with this association. We have been working with large industrial houses in India through project-specific contracts but now we can draw upon our extensive global network and expertise in clean tech clusters and associations for offering solutions to problems that are unique to India.”

Venkatesh Valluri, founder & chairman, Valluri Technology Accelerators said, “This agreement will focus on key areas around energy saving, water, pollution, waste, healthcare and smart city development through collaborative approaches and principles of technology convergence.This partnership will also aim to create a digitally empowered eco-system through cloud-based technologies based on circular economic principles where products can be repaired, reused or upgraded instead of being disposed. Deploying the right cost effective technologies in India for these applications, which have a positive impact on societies, will lead to creating multiple manufacturing opportunities. This will aid the “Make in India” campaign which the Government has been supporting.”
