Collaborating for a smarter world
The DaVinci Institute is a think tank and consultancy specialising in transnational, interdisciplinary and multi-stakeholder collaboration for smart & sustainable innovation. We act as a facilitator for innovative, trans-disciplinary activities in the field of research, culture and policy that aim to effectively address societal challenges.
We believe that we can achieve better results if people share knowledge and collaborate. We try to lead by example – sharing our ideas, but also promoting the thoughts and contributions of other, like-minded people. As you can see from these pages, we aim to connect three key sources of knowledge and innovation:
- science: research and innovation
- creativity: cultural leaders and creative industries
- society: grass-root and membership organisations, groups, networks and associations
We believe that this can be done through
- smarter communication: creating smarter ways of talking with each other
- smarter exchanges: actively sharing ideas, knowledge and experiences
The mission of the DaVinci Institute is to provide high quality management, training and dissemination services for innovative and trans-disciplinary collaborations. The institute, as a not for profit organisation, aims to act as facilitator and catalyst for stakeholders from research, innovation and culture who join forces to tackle societal challenges. Our goal is to become the European standard in collaboration management, training and dissemination.
