From state-of-the-art research to local ecosystem impact

VITO is an independent Flemish research organization in the area of cleantech and sustainable development aiming to accelerate the transition to a sustainable world. VITO has over 900 employees from 39 nationalities. In 2018, VITO produced 262 scientific applications and applied for 17 patents.
VITO has the vision that its technology has the potential to boost Flemish ecosystems. Therefore, they implement co-creation projects with a broad variety of stakeholders, ranging from start-ups to established companies, industry organizations, and government agencies.

"The Kunigi team combined their experience of brainstorming methods with in-depth knowledge about technological trends. This gave them an edge with the brainstorm participants."

The kunigi way

Facilitating a collaborative environment to achieve common goals

Recent co-creation projects focussed on remote sensing, sensor networks, and air quality, re-thinking organic by-products, smart heat networks, and digital heat networks.
Kunigi was responsible for the collaborative brainstorms during the co-creation projects. We were able to let relative strangers work together efficiently in an open and positive mindset towards common goals.

The outcome

Improved collaborations of up to +70 SMEs annually

As a result, several collaborations came to fruition that improved products and services with VITO technology. The co-creation projects also contributed to VITO being able to work with 70+ SMEs annually.
