Entrepreneurial passion in a digitalised Belgium

Short Description

Minister Annelies Verlinden will draw parallels from her current position as Minister of Home Affairs, Institutional Reform and Democratic Renewal and her experience as co-managing partner in an international law firm. She will focus on young start-ups. How to survive in a highly competitive and complex environment, and how to be successful? In Belgium we are dealing with similar challenges, for example with our operational police work. How can we make a big leap into the 21st century? We aim to embrace technological innovations in the security and police landscape, and in order to so, we must create a guiding framework in which proportionality, legitimacy and credibility are key.
