Topsector Algemeen

The offshore wind industry faces a unique challenge; to construct one of the largest infrastructural developments in Dutch history. To give this development an extra push we have to make offshore wind even more affordable, reliable and sustainable, by accelerating technical innovation and implementing it into the offshore market. The innovations will give offshore wind a better position in the energy system, both in the Netherlands and internationally. The Netherlands are known for their strong innovation skills and knowledge and experience in the wind and offshore industry. That’s why Offshore Wind Innovators network has taken the initiative to launch the second edition of the Offshore Wind Innovation Challenge.

This May the second edition of the Offshore Wind Innovation Challenges (OWIC) will kick off with the goal to accelerate applied innovations in the offshore wind market. Every innovation starts with a challenge and this is where we need your help.
