The BIOWIN cluster encourages and assists projects to create innovation platforms which are collective infrastructure projects aimed at filling a gap in the development of biomedical activity in Wallonia.
BIOWIN thus assists many projects that are aligned with its strategic and technological goals as well as its portfolio of collaborative research projects.
The main aim of the innovation platforms is to facilitate or accelerate the bringing to market of new and innovative products, treatments, processes or services, for the benefit of businesses and patients alike.
The platforms welcome all interested cluster stakeholders: priority is given to SMEs but not exclusively, larger companies, university laboratories and research centres are also welcomed.
The basic concept behind the creation of collective infrastructures is to assemble in one place all the technological skills or services on offer for members of the cluster. This will permit economies of scale to be achieved.
Platform projects promoting cooperation between industrial and academic partners provide collective and strategic added value for Wallonia.
