Vito eyes smartcity-related projects in India

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Belgium-based research and technology firm Vito NV has entered into an agreement with Valluri Technology Accelerators to cash in on programmes relating to smartcities, clean technology and environmental sustainability in India.

The two companies have plans to offer their expertise on developing technological concepts and know-how in the fields of energy, water, waste, pollution, healthcare and land use.

Through this technology and business partnership, Vito has made its first formal entry into the country.

"We have been working with large industrial houses in India through project-specific contracts but now we can draw upon our extensive global network and expertise in clean-tech clusters and associations for offering solutions to problems that are unique to India," said VITO CEO Dirk Fransaer.

Valluri Technology Accelerators Founder & Chairman Venkatesh Valluri said: "This agreement will focus on key areas around energy saving, water, pollution, waste, healthcare and smartcity development through collaborative approaches and principles of technology convergence."

Headquartered in Mol, Belgium, Vito is a leading European policy consultant and had a turnover of 140 million euros in 2014.
