Sirris is the collective centre for and by the technological industry. We offer companies three key assets to help them remain innovative: years of experience and comprehensive expertise in a wide range of industries; high-tech testing infrastructure spread across the country; and an extensive network of partners. This way we help large and smaller players in industry make the right technological choices and achieve sustainable economic growth. Within the Newskin-project, 2 labs of Sirris are involved. The OWI-lab specialized in wind energy, performs research and provides services in particularly in condition monitoring in harsh conditions and in climate chamber testing of large components. The Sirris Coating Lab is specialized in development, modification, and deposition and testing of functional and smart coatings on industrial products in real applications and harsh environments.
