Project CompositeBoost funded by IWT

In March 2015, the VIS project CompositeBoost was given green light by IWT, the Flemish agency for Innovation by Science and Technology. We will be organizing a kickoff meeting with the industrial users committee shortly.

The project is aimed at boosting Flemish composite innovations by

  • Tools for small and medium enterprises, adapted to their individual needs,
  • Knowledge transfer through hands-on master classes with international expertsfrom academia and industry
  • Industrial demonstrator cases & pilot lines
  • Exploration & implementation of tools by the industry
