The business of SLVISIONS arised from the research project of the FOSTA Research Project ‘FutureWind’. Our business is based on state-of-the-art industrial research, therefore we aim to collaborate with different research units. We are especially supported by the Chair of Steel, Lightweight and Composite Structures and our scientific mentor Prof. Knobloch at Ruhr-University Bochum. With our network of research partners we are also able to initiate and support research projects, Master and Bachelor theses and other initiatives which are strongly connected to our customer needs in practice.

Cooperations & Memberships
With our network and due our scientific mentor Prof. Knobloch, we are able to have access to several normative committees, including the ECCS TC 16, ‘Wind Energy Structures’ and the Working Group 9 of the Structural Eurocodes (CEN TC 250/SC 3/ WG 9) which work on the standards of fatigue assessment of steel structures (EN 1993-1-9).
Besides our deep insights into the normative working, we cooperate with the Chair of Steel, Lightweight and Composite Structures of Ruhr-University Bochum to support young engineers and their development with relevant topics for their theses. For us as a young start-up company in the wind energy sector, social and ecological sustainability is very important to us. Furthermore we are member in the International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABSE).
We cooperate with different universities and faculties, e.g.
