Open Innovation

Traditionally, new business development processes and the marketing of new products took place within firm boundaries. Recently, companies have shifted from so-called closed innovation processes towards a more open way of innovating.

Open innovation is the use of purposive inflows and outflows of knowledge to accelerate internal innovation, and expand the markets for external use of innovation, respectively. We help companies to learn and develop this new approach by monitoring and search for new technologies and ideas outside of the firm but also through cooperation with suppliers and competitors, in order to create customer value.

Events and training organization

We are closely cooperating with specialized partners (universities, research centres, industry companies, SMEs, associations, architects, etc.) all around Europe which help us to complement our expertise. Through the cooperation with our partners we are able to deliver a wide range of services related to meeting, conference and training organization.
