Multimodaal.Vlaanderen was founded on the basis of an agreement made between VIL, the Flemish government and the department of mobility and public works. The agreement is made for a period of 5 years (2017-2022).

Governance is organized in the following manner:

Board of directors

VIL’s Board of Directors determines the strategy of the organization and focuses on achieving the goals and target values.

Task Force

The task force serves as a Single Point of Contact for questions from the market. Its tasks include reporting, discussing and providing feedback on bottleneck issues. This also involves proactive information from the government, conveying government communication to the public, and the reporting of KPI’s and budget.

Structure Task Force:

  • Isabel Jacobs, Cabinet minister Weyts
  • Thomas Christaens, Department MOW
  • Peter Lagey, Manager Multimodaal.Vlaanderen
  • Liesbeth Geysels, Managing Director VIL

Sounding Board

The sounding board group is composed of representatives of the infrastructure administrator, the Flemish Sea harbours, the sector federations, the universities and the business sector.

The Sounding Board is tasked with creating wide support for the target group and offers a forum where bottlenecks and opportunities can be discussed.

Finally, the Sounding Board provides feedback to the government in relation to financial support for multimodal projects and initiatives.

The decisions made by the Sounding board group are not binding.
