Tech campus in the centre of the Euregion

īCorda Campusī is the metamorphosis of the Philips site in Hasselt, where the curtain fell in 2002 after almost a quarter century of innovation and production. The provincial development company POM Limburg, the city of Hasselt and the Limburg-based investment company LRM decided to bring the Philips site back to life. Today LRM is the principal shareholder of Corda Campus.

Currently 50,000mē are already in use, and this will quickly grow to 70,000mē. Where earlier it was a site with a single factory (Philips Hasselt), there are now over 200 different companies working in one and the same environment. Around 100 īstart-upsī are expanding there into īscale-upsī. Corda Campus has now become the professional home for 3000 employees whose average age is under 30. It’s a magnet for companies of very different kinds, so that the number of professionals will continue to rise steadily to an expected 5000!

Campus atmosphere
In addition to renovating existing buildings, new ones are also being erected. īCorda 1ī, designed by the Antwerp architectural firm ELD, offers 14,000mē of surface area and stands out with its sloping green roof. The layout offers many units with smaller surface areas because there was, and is, high demand for precisely that. One also finds there the īCorda INCubatorī, where around 100 īstart-upsī are busy becoming īscale-upsī. There are important links with Silicon Valley and New York: for some, this is the ideal springboard to the technology Mecca.
