A new opportunity to connect with influencing innovation leaders in the offshore energy sector. And a possibility to find partners to fast forward your developments. Pitch your innovation at the GROW Innovation Meeting on March 25 in Utrecht.

As you may know, GROW is a consortium consisting of representatives of the offshore wind energy sector and knowledge institutions that work together to develop innovations and accelerate the offshore energy transition.

The GROW partners meet twice a year for a full day to discuss potential innovations to work on together. In the upcoming meeting, GROW also wants to give innovative SME companies the opportunity to pitch their innovation, concept or idea.

We would like to invite you to compete for one of the available SME spots during the next GROW innovation meeting on 25 March 2024 in Utrecht. A selection is made based on all submissions, with an important criterion being the extent to which the proposed innovation meets the interests of the sector.

What's in it for you?

  • connect to the innovation leaders of influencing industry and knowledge players in the offshore wind sector
  • possibility to convince these people to partner in your innovation, concept or idea

What's in it for the GROW consortium partners?

How to increase your chances?

The GROW consortium is currently active in the following themes:

  4. Circularity and Symbiosis Inclusive Design (ecological impact and multi-use / circular design)

To date, theme 1 and 2 have received most attention in projects. But the consortium is actively exploring opportunities to intensify work on the latter two themes.
