Industrial Dialogue Aachen

The Industrial Dialogue Aachen is an open network by and for the industry of the Aachen Region. The entrepreneurial initiative aims to get to know other companies and new partners in the region and Euregion, to promote a positive awareness of industry, to act as a mouthpiece for industry and to actively promote the transfer from university to company. A central contribution to promoting networking among companies in the Aachen region is the company visit programme "Hallo Nachbar!", in which regional production-oriented companies open their doors to interested companies from the neighbourhood.

In the past six years, more than 721 specialists and managers have visited 33 local companies in the Aachen Region. In 2020 five more interesting companies are looking forward to your visit.

Due to its location at the three-country corner, the Aachen region traditionally has very close cross-border links with its Dutch and Belgian partner regions.

Since the mid-1990s, AGIT has been successfully promoting stronger networking and cooperation in the fields of business, innovation and research and development with a large number of initiatives and projects. We therefore have an excellent network in the regions of Dutch Limburg and North Brabant (NL) but also in East Belgium, Liège, Belgian Limburg and Flemish Brabant (B)  .

For several years now, we have concluded cooperation agreements with various partners, including the Industrial Bank LIOF and the Province of Limburg (NL) in Maastricht (NL), but also POM Limburg in Hasselt (B) and spi in Liège (B).
