WASP invites industries and researchers to the launch of WARA 2.0, introducing the updated concept, news from all five arenas and a glimpse of what is to come.

WASP Research Arenas (WARAs) are research collaboration platforms gathering researchers from academia and industry. Through the arenas, the participating researchers gain exclusive access to infrastructures, resources and competence in a context that facilitates networking and promotes knowledge transfer.

During 2020 the concept of WASP Research Arenas has been rewritten, resulting in several new, state of the art research arenas. The new concept and arenas will officially be launched at this webinar.
