Cleantech Expert, Ventures4Growth
Bart Vercoutere has a deep understanding of the framework and scientific and business-technical challenges of sustainability. He was a guest lecturer at IHE (DELFT) on sustainable ports, as his long track record started at Royal Haskoning DHV. He was a member of the core team on engineering Cradle-to-Cradle projects. He founded and was CEO of the Flemish Cleantech Cluster, to fasten up and support innovation in a carbon-neutral circular society. In its role to inspire, from 2012 the cross over between business, technology and art was challenged, e.g. Daan Roosegaarde and Frederik De Wilde (absolute black) were mixed with scientific insights.
As president of one of the operational NGO of Natuurpunt, he is also well aware of the robustness of ecosystems and the role of biodiversity as inspiration for and challenge in the next generation of the economy.
