The Brussels-Capital ERDF OP supports initiatives that contribute to improving the urban metabolism in line with the sustainable urban development strategy pursued by the European Union. In essence, the aim is to support a limitation of incoming flow demand, to improve metabolization and to minimise waste, whilst enhancing the environmental and economic resources of Brussels, as well as its human resources.


The Programme puts in place a concentration of  resources,

  • on a thematic level: projects from the first four priority axes have to contribute to strengthening specific economic sectors or offer a response to certain challenges identified as being priorities for the Region;
  •  as well as on a territorial level: the infrastructures financed are concentrated in the Urban Regeneration Zone and, for the first four priority axes, in Regional Development Hubs.

Priority axes

  • Strengthening research and improving the transfer and promotion of innovation
    • Increasing applied research capacities in association with the priority challenges identified in the diagnosis
    • Increasing innovation in SMEs
  • Strengthening entrepreneurship and improving the development of SMEs in promising industries
    • Creating new employment-generating activities, including in the social economy
    • Supporting the development of SMEs, including social economy projects
  • Supporting the development of a circular economy through the rational use of resources in promising industries (low carbon)
    • Strengthening the energy transition of Brussels SMEs
    • Supporting the energy transition of public infrastructure and public housing
    • Improving the environmental quality of urban spaces
  • Supporting the development of a circular economy through the rational use of resources in promising industries (resources/waste)
    • Supporting the improvement of the urban environment through the rehabilitation of polluted soil and industrial wastelands and the improvement of the environmental quality of urban spaces
