About us


In early 2005, FLAMAC was founded by Agoria and three leading industrial companies with important material research and development activities in Flanders. Financial support was provided by these three companies and by the Flemish government. 

In 2009, FLAMAC was integrated in SIM (Strategic Initiative Materials) Flanders. SIM is a Strategic Research Centre which strives to acquire a leading and internationally acknowledged position in the area of materials research and materials technology.

At present, FLAMAC has become an independent world-class competence centre in high-throughput experimentation, with a broadened research scope from materials to chemical products, serving a wide variety of application areas across different industries, in Flanders and abroad. 


It is our mission to increase and improve materials and chemical research in the world. To fulfil our mission, we: 

  • keep developing our competences in high-throughput experimentation in order to accelerate materials R&D as an independent research partner for our customers;
  • aim to serve a wide variety of application areas across different industries by giving technological advice and performing collective as well as contract research in the field of material research and chemical products;
  • strive to foster an open innovative collaboration environment between academia and industries, in Flanders and beyond. 

FLAMAC has been ISO 9001 certified since 2013.  Our company is further accredited as service provider for SME companies in Flanders (‘Dienstverlener voor de KMO-portefeuille’), and registered as a non-profit research organisation by the French government enabling French companies to apply for tax credits (‘Crédit Impôt Recherche = CIR’)
