How we work
OWGP is an independent, not-for-profit organisation. Our core funding is provided by private developers, represented through OWIC. We can support companies of any size and a wide array of projects from R&D to facility investments.
To win support, companies are typically expected to participate in competitive processes and to provide match funding (cash or in kind).
Once onboarded, our project managers will work with beneficiaries to develop work plans and deliver scope of the engagement.
