Research & Development (R&D)

Creating knowledge and finding out new insights has long stopped to be an undertaking in ivory towers. Innovation in networks and open architectures, linking research to diverse areas of application, and involving stakeholders, policy and society in its process have become key  aspects for research and science. Prospex is at the forefront of innovation and application in these areas, working worldwide with key knowledge institutions, companies and organisations in a variety of top level R&D projects. Providing science-policy and science-society interfaces, stakeholder-led research processes and participatory foresight and strategy-development, Prospex is the partner of choice for players in R&D.
