Many companies that integrate software into their products wrestle with the question how many new variants of a product they should bring to market and also how they can efficiently manage such innovations. Sirris joined no fewer than 23 partners from 7 countries in addressing this complex issue in a European research project, called VARIES. In this project, Belgium is the country with the largest number of participating organisations, led by Barco.

Sustainable innovation not only has ecological benefits; it also offers many technological and economic advantages, as Laborex discovered, following the development of an environmentally friendly cleaning system for train bogies. Doubling productivity while also reducing water and energy consumption is a remarkable achievement, earning the Olen-based company a well-deserved Innovation Award in 2012.
Flanders’ PlasticVision sought and found a partner for a feasibility study into scratch-resistant coatings for plastics in Sirris's Smart Coating Application Lab.
