About us

DSP Valley brings together the triple helix parties: companies, research institutes, the regional authorities together with other relevant stakeholders (investors, service providers, users, …) that play an important role in the entire value chain of smart solutions enabled by digital technologies. The mission of DSP Valley is to improve the competitiveness and to accelerate the growth of the cluster by setting up activities and services that support the cluster members in:  1.    Building emerging and cross-disciplinary value chains 2.    Getting access to the international and global market 3.    Getting access to the required resources: i.e. state of the art technology and competences or public and private funding As such, DSP Valley contributes significantly in maintaining and improving the relative position of the digital technology industry in the region on global scale. The forecasted growth in digital technologies globally will therefore lead to growth on a local scale and by that to a significant contribution in the prosperity of the regional ecosystem.
