Help build a sustainable future, sign up for the Van Oord Innovation Challenge

As Van Oord celebrates its 150th anniversary, we’re recalling the past and looking forward to the future. But we’re not just waiting to see what happens: we are actively working to build the future with our Van Oord Innovation Challenge.

Are you a scale-up, start-up, or early-stager that wants to contribute to a sustainable future? Then you’re just the organisation we are looking for!

Make a difference and work with Van Oord on developing new technologies and innovations that will tackle the challenges of climate change and promote the transition to clean, green energy.

The challenge

Van Oord wants to know how you would tackle the challenges raised by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):

- The challenge of executing marine engineering and energy projects in which we create value in relation to affordable and clean energy (SDG 7) and climate change (SDG 13).

- The challenge of deploying our equipment, engineering and estimating resources to create value in relation to industry, innovation and infrastructure (SDG 9).

Registration is no longer possible

Signing up for the Van Oord Challenge is unfortunately no longer possible. The selection of the ten start-ups is in full swing. Together with Van Oord they work on their ideas and we guide them with professional coaching. We’ll announce the two winners in November.
