Every innovation starts with one good idea and a lot of passion. Those are traits we recognise – because we started out the same way. From our start-up roots, we have grown to become market leader in innovation and funding services in Europe, with offices in 7 European countries. Our company is connected to a global network of national and regional creative partners: multinationals, start-ups, RTOs and universities, sector and public organisations. From this unique network, we work on fostering connections and stimulating, realising and financing innovation in an ever faster and more complex innovation landscape – changing the world for the better.
We are by your side to support your Research, Development and Innovation process: from R&D process optimisation and strategy definition up to technology scouting, RD&I concept definition and to execution of your innovation projects. Our experts help you conceive, analyse, develop, finance and implement your innovation process and ideas. We connect you to our network of relevant projects and partners, boosting your innovation. We identify technologies and stakeholders, assist in consortium building, support technology transfer and go-to-market strategies and disseminate results to the right communities.
UNIQUE TOOLS AND INSIGHTS
We underpin our services portfolio with unique state-of-art intelligence tools and combine big-data with a vast network of top innovators to benefit your innovation process. We mine millions of global patents, publicly funded projects and partners as well as scientific papers, to spot market-technology trends, map the innovation eco-system and scout technologies as well as solutions providers. All with the aim to help you make better-informed decisions, define effective strategies and R&D technological choices and boost the return of your R&D investments.
We are situated at the heart of the European Union. Our presence in Brussels – the de facto capital of the EU, which holds just one of our total of 19 offices – enables our clients to reach and connect to our vast network of stakeholder communities within EU institutions, sector organisations and technology platforms. Through our contact with key stakeholders from all over Europe, we contribute to the shaping of the EU’s innovation policies. And we drive the realisation of those policies through the innovation services we deliver to a large number of projects we are partners in.
