Moonshot Research Trajectories (MOTs)

Innovative Moonshot research will enable the development of breakthrough technologies by 2040 to create new climate-friendly technologies, products and processes.

Fortunately, Flanders does not have to start from scratch. Flanders has a strong knowledge base and an innovative industry that is already putting promising technologies into practice. Moonshot identifies five core competencies, or enablers, as specific strengths Flanders that can build on: conversion technology, separation technology, predictive technology, energy storage and energy transport.

Through these enablers, four closely connected Moonshot Research Trajectories (Moonshot OnderzoeksTraject or MOT) were initiated. In each MOT, innovative research concerning the MOT topic is pursued. Click on the images below to learn more about each MOT.
