We, growers, are approached on a regular base by start-ups or suppliers who have invented or developed something, with the question if we can help them with further development, testing or market launch of their product.
Sometimes the ideas are great, but more often the ideas are not sufficiently developed, not yet good enough or we are simply cannot use them at all. The goal of Glas 4.0 is to evaluate the many ideas, initiatives and developments in an early stage, support the good ideas and help them in further development to products or services in a way that our sector can take advantage. It is also a goal of Glas4.0 that our affiliated growers don’t have to invest time in ideas that will not give back any revenue. At the same time we want to prevent that good ideas don’t get the attention they deserve and therefor probably are not realised.
On this website (in the telersportal) you can see what ideas and companies are already known by Glas 4.0 and how we reviewed them. Are you being asked to support or help new developments, but you don’t want to do it or don’t have the time, tell the developer/supplier to go to Glas 4.0 and applicate. You can also fill out the “telerscontact-formulier”, to be found onthe telersportal, to report the contact to us. We, than, will contact the possible applicant, review the application end see if and how we can help the initiative to develop further.
If you have questions about Glas 4.0 or want to be involved in the developments please fill out the contactform. We will get in touch.
