Welcome to Van Oord
Van Oord Innovation Challenge
Based on our Vision, Mission, and the approach of our Corporate Innovation, Research and Development team, we have formulated the following Main Challenge:
When carrying out Marine Infrastructure and Energy projects (outside in), how can Van Oord create added value on SDG Themes 7 (sustainable and affordable energy) and 13 (combat climate change)?
How can Van Oord use its Equipment and Engineering and Estimating tools (inside out) to create added value on SDG Theme 9 (innovation and sustainable infrastructure)?
We have listed several themes / ambitions:
Make our societal added value obvious.
How will this unfold?
The marine industry must play a crucial role in powering progress. What needs to be done in the coming two decades is to accelerate new business models and enable new innovative technologies. Integrated solutions that are effective, profitable and scalable, preferably on a global scale.
Van Oord is looking for game changing solutions that address the challenges of climate change and energy transition. Who dares to contribute to this; are you a scale up, startup, early stage organisation that can make the difference?
The Van Oord challenge raises the bar and calls for the best, potentially game changing solutions to come forward and work with Van Oord. Van Oord strongly believes in cooperation when aiming for new technologies and innovations which solve/tackle the challenges in climate change and empowers the progress in energy transition. We aim to select ten teams/startups to work towards a solution that will be pitched in November 2018.
