We don't walk alone, the industrial partner network of OWI-Lab is an important asset. The IBN (Innovative Business Network - or innovation cluster) Offshore Energy has been set up by the OWI-Lab partners Sirris, VUB, UGent and Agoria in 2016. This industrial partner network involves more than 55 companies and R&D organizations that have the aim to collaborate and initiate new research & innovation projects. This initiative has support from VLAIO (Flemish innovation agency) and companies can become a member to get involved in the industrial offshore energy network. Interested in becoming a member of the IBN Offshore Energy? - contact Pieter Jan Jordaens. All cluster members can be found here.
OWI-Lab has serval regional, federal, European and international partners. Throuh the OWI-Lab collaboration we follow up different initiatives from those partners to fullfill our mission in finding collective challenges and set up new RD&I projects.
