In two weeks' time, DIANA will share it's second call for innovative technology companies working on solutions that could change the world.

Last year, there were answering more than 1300 innovators with ground-breaking deep technologies across three dual-use Challenges. 44 companies joined the pilot cohort, accelerating their businesses while increasing their networks across the Alliance. Check out what a few of these innovators had to say about DIANA in the video ( Water Linked VanWyn Inc. IONATE Astrolight GaltTec REVOBEAM

More information:

  • The new challenges will be posted the first week of July on the DIANA website and on LinkedIn.
  • This year, the call will cover five Challenges, including similar themes to last year as well as two new dual-use focal areas.
  • If you submitted last year but were unsuccessful, we encourage you to try again.
  • You will have approximately six weeks to complete your initial applications, which will include a quad chart and short proposal.

With the countdown begun, DIANA hopes you consider joining them to tackle some of the world's most complex and pressing technological challenges. Together, we can help create a more peaceful and resilient global future!

Autoship - a new and durable way of freight transport

Autoship is, as the name suggests, an acronym for autonomous ship. Just like with self-driving cars, the possibilities of an unmanned boat seem endless. It can create more efficient freight transport, around the clock deliveries and these are just a few of the examples. The project has two societal challenges.

At first, De Vlaamse Waterweg was a bit hesitant as their experience with FP7 or Horizon 2020 projects was limited and they had not been very successful up until then. The fact that they were already doing basic research on the topic of autonomous boats, and the administrative help of NCP FLanders helped De Vlaamse waterweg to cross the line and get involved.
