RVO decides to fund Villari!

We’re very proud to announce that the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) has decided to award us with EUR 350K for development of our technology! Thanks to swift adoption of remote working methods during COVID-19-related restrictions (including last-minute video pitches from our side), the advisory committee has unanimously agreed to grant Villari these funds. We will use these funds to accelerate development of our next generation of wireless crack monitoring sensors, so that our clients can benefit from our innovative technology even sooner. Also, we’ll be expanding our team. Many thanks to the RVO for putting their trust in us!

Partnership with TU Delft

TU Delft library

As of December 2019, Villari and TU Delft have entered into a long-term partnership that further underlines the bonds between both parties. Villari has started as a spin-off from the TU Delft, looking to build upon technology that has started originally as a Joint Industry Project at the Ship & Offshore Structures department of the 3ME faculty. Together with TU Delft, Villari aims to enhance safety for thousands of steel structures across the globe – both on and offshore!
