Soaring prices, supply problems of all kinds of raw materials and products ... these are all burning issues that can have a major impact on your business. Will the Club of Rome's prediction that our raw materials will be depleted come true, or is this just a temporary glitch linked to stronger economic growth after this crisis? And above all, what can we do to protect ourselves? Is this growth in itself really such a great idea?

Belgian wind energy companies today enjoy an excellent reputation worldwide. They can count on the support from OWI-Lab, the innovation and knowledge platform with researchers and engineers from Sirris, VUB and UGent, founded 10 years ago now. The cross-fertilisation between the industry and the academic world turns out to be the key to the success of our Belgian companies.

Icing events during wintertime or at high altitudes still form a major obstacle in many industries, such as aviation, construction, (wind) energy and transportation. Companies are seeking for solutions to mitigate ice or to limit the efforts of ice removal. Research is often focused on designing new structured surfaces or using advanced coating technologies. In order to fully understand the potential of such technologies, there is a need to test such systems in realistic environments. Sirris comes prepared.
