Project - GIST

Description


Description (EN): The consortium of ‘GIST’ consists of regional clusters that want to increase clean tech innovations and applications in industrial environments and help develop regions to market leadership in various specialisms. To date, companies are relatively unfamiliar with potentially relevant technologies, suitable knowledge suppliers or technical experts. In addition, the high development costs and the risk profile play a major role. All this means that few sustainability innovations lead to an effective investment. By removing risks around investment projects, companies will implement new technologies faster. Growth is the core of the project, just as ‘GIST’ (yeast) also raises bread in the meaning of the micro-organism, and thus allows it to 'grow'. ‘GIST’ works with two types of feasibility studies that develop technologies or processes with a reduced energy or raw material consumption and with a high commercial and upscaling potential. The first type consists of 10 long-lasting FEED (Front End Engineering Design) studies in the form of business simulations or the realization of a pilot and/or prototype. In addition, specific knowledge or technical questions will be resolved in 15 short FEED-Light projects. The target group are medium-sized and large 'asset owners' in the process industry and technical suppliers such as small-to-medium size businesses. Through connecting the different networks and the sharing of good practices a qualitatively high-value pipeline of concepts is created.
Description: Het consortium van GIST bestaat uit regionale clusters die cleantech innovaties en toepassingen in industriële omgeving willen verhogen en regio’s helpen ontwikkelen tot marktleiderschap in verschillende specialismen. Tot op heden is men relatief onbekend met mogelijk relevante technologieën, geschikte kennisleveranciers of technische experts. Daarnaast spelen de hoge ontwikkelkosten en het risicoprofiel een grote rol. Dit alles leidt ertoe dat weinig duurzaamheidsinnovaties tot een effectieve investering leiden. Door het wegnemen van risico’s rond investeringsprojecten zullen bedrijven sneller nieuwe technologieën implementeren. Groei is de kern van het project, net zoals GIST ook in de betekenis van het micro-organisme o.a. brood doet rijzen en dus laat ‘groeien’. GIST werkt met twee typen haalbaarheidsstudies die technologieën of processen ontwikkelen met een verlaagd energie- of grondstofverbruik en met een hoog commercieel en opschalingspotentieel. Het eerste type bestaat uit 10 langdurige FEED (Front End Engineering Design) studies in de vorm van business simulaties of de realisatie van een pilot en/of prototype. Daarnaast worden in 15 korte FEED-Light projecten specifieke kennis- of technische vragen opgelost. De doelgroep zijn middelgrote en grote ´asset owners´ in de procesindustrie en technische toeleveranciers zoals KMO/MKB. Door de verschillende netwerken met elkaar te verbinden en het delen van good practices ontstaat er een kwalitatief hoogwaardige pijplijn van concepten.
