SynchUp! is initiated by REWIN

Limited effort, high success rate

Are you looking for a circular, high-tech or bio-based solution to an existing problem? Are you open to co-creation and would you like to work with SMEs and/or start-ups through open innovation? Then SynchUp! is the right programme for you. Renowned companies like Cosun, Philips, Fokker, Vanderlande and Cargill have preceded you.

Collaboration with scale-ups and start-ups

We set up SynchUp! in such a way that you and your partner can complement and reinforce each other. Working with scale-ups/start-ups will not just give you access to innovative solutions but is also an opportunity to think beyond your fixed business processes for once and work in short cycles. Moreover, you will gain important insights during the process.

With surprising success: 9 out of 10 challenges produce solutions, 60% to 70% of which come from outside the industry!


SynchUp! focuses on certain (transition) themes, such as stimulating the transition to a bio-based & circular economy and the transition to industry 4.0. To give you an example, challenges can revolve around the following:

  • Value creation based on waste flows
  • Bio-based raw materials and product development
  • Reusing materials
  • Predictive maintenance
  • Digitisation and robotisation
