Chairman: Mark Heijne (Fugro)

The Dutch offshore energy supply industry is a leader in its field, renowned for its gas technology and offshore wind expertise. Innovation is key to remain at the forefront of new developments and new business models.

It is an important task for the Innovation & technology committee to encourage and stimulate IRO members to strategically invest in innovative technology and participate in innovation programmes set by IRO in cooperation with other parties such as TNO, NML, KIVI, TKI WoZ, YES!Delft, Buccaneer and InnovationQuarter.

Subjects like digitalization, cyber risk management and cross-sector collaboration are key elements that will be addressed in this committee.
