  • Alstom

    Alstom Charleroi Site, counting more than 500 engineers among close to thousand employees, is center of excellence within Alstom organization. As European Regional Center, Alstom conducts contracts related to this region, thanks to its central position.
    To succeed in these missions, the company rely on the contribution of a strongly established network of small, medium and big companies, high level academic competencies hosted in the nearby universities, provisions given by the regional research centers, which also contribute to the broadening of company expertises.
    Alstom technologies should also be in a position to play a significant role in a multisector research platform currently being set-up at a regional level, as adressing of course a much larger perimeter than the sole railway transportation.

  • Thales Alenia Space

    Thales has developed close ties with the belgian industry over many years, and has worked hand in hand with universities and research institutes to develop innovative products for its customers.

    Given its central location in Europe, the density of its neighbouring universities and the great collaboration dynamics between world-class companies, the Charleroi-area is already recognised as a hub for power electronics.
