After four years, we are taking stock of what we and the participating companies have learned from the CE Connect learning networks. What does such a learning network stand for? What topics were covered? What insights did we gain, what lessons did we learn?

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.

Access to (raw) materials, but also climate, are important reasons why circularity should be high on the agenda of manufacturing companies. Two things are vital for companies in the manufacturing industry eager to make the transition to a circular economy: cooperation and trust.

Qualify project partners Sirris and Damen are performing a market study on the application of adhesive bonding in offshore and marine sectors. The study gives an overview of the current state of the application of adhesive bonding in various sectors, focuses on the challenges and advantages of technology in offshore harsh environments. It presents several case studies showing successfully performed industrial projects. You can receive it by helping us!

We share the key lessons and insights from our sessions at the CE Connect learning network with you. In the most recent session, we explored how you can build a new ecosystem of actors: where to start, how to find the right partners, why they should cooperate, how to start cooperating. For these and other questions, we managed to define actions that will lead you to meaningful answers.
