What does POM do?

POM Limburg outlines the economic strategy of Limburg.

  • As a coordinating organization, we took the lead in the SALKturbo plan, directing over 150 million European transition funds.
  • We designed the future of our business parks for the Spatial Policy Plan and were also responsible for master plans, such as the one for the university campus in Diepenbeek.
  • Our knowledge cell collects objective data for this operation and distributes it among Limburg’s economic players.

POM Limburg literally creates space for our economy.

  • We are actively involved in the development of 200 hectares of industrial estates and are creating new campuses such as the Health Campus and the Construction Campus in Diepenbeek, Campus North in Pelt, and the Logistics Campus in Genk.
  • In addition, we participate in numerous projects with partners like LRM and EnergyVille, and we oversee the economic ecosystems of several of these campuses.
  • Our Welcome Management team, in collaboration with Flanders Investment and Trade and VLAIO, persuades international companies of our strengths.

POM Limburg accelerates Limburg companies.

  • Together with employee and employer organizations, we expedite the digitization, sustainability, and innovation of the Limburg economy.
  • We do this, for example, in the plastics industry within a new plastic community. But also in logistics, where POM strengthens logistical links by collaborating with Port of Antwerp-Bruges and Liège Airport.
  • Additionally, we are a coordinating partner in European programs, such as bringing the prestigious Einstein Telescope to the Euregion.


Tom Vandeput (CD&V), the Economy deputy, chairs POM Limburg as the representative of the provincial government. Managing director Noël Slangen is responsible for the operational management of POM Limburg. He reports to the executive committee and the Board of Management.

  • The executive committee consists of six delegates from the social partners and six representatives from the local governments. They determine the day-to-day policy.
  • The Board of Management consists of twelve representatives from the social partners and twelve representatives from the local governments, both majority and opposition. They determine the strategy.
