What can you expect from us?

Startups and organisations

The organisation of the future is an ecosystem. It relies on innovations from specialists outside the organisation and perhaps even from outside the country's borders. Startups, innovative companies and scientists all contribute to your innovation. You will receive proposals from startups, innovative organisations and universities that you can learn from and partner with. 

Case studies and experiments

We also analyse case studies of and experiments by organisations. These provide insight into how one deals with innovation, new technology, a recession or the impact of the current crisis. We can learn from the successes and failures of others. This lowers unnecessary costs and results in a higher change rate.

Scientists, specialists, trendwatchers, futurists and leaders from all over the world share their forecasts and analyses about the future. We list them for you and provide explanations and context, transforming the information into insights that offer direction and guidance.

Analyses and forecasts

You will receive a periodic overview of digital innovations and business models in your sector that might be of interest, but we also look at other industries. Digital business models provide guidance during a crisis or recession. In addition, organisations without a digital business model have no right of existence in the future.

Business models and innovations

We analyse trends within primary and secondary education. We study developments in learning labs, virtual reality, distance learning, artificial intelligence, robotics, and many other trends. These insights enable you to make the right decisions and help you enter into valuable partnerships.

Trends with impact

We gather, analyse and interpret current (inter)national statistics. We continuously conduct international research into important issues currently at play, such as the economy, innovation, transformation and the role of technology.

Important trends in education

Smart technology
Technology plays an important role in preparing students for the 21st-century workforce. AI-powered apps and platforms can personalise learning, while the use of robotics in classrooms can widen access to education by allowing sick students to attend classes remotely. Immersive tech like AR and VR can help students better visualise lessons they’re learning and better retain complex information.
Skills of the future
Schools need to make an effort to prepare students for the labour market and make sure they remain relevant in the future workforce. To thrive in a technology-rich society, students need to acquire STEM skills, as well as improve skills such as collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity. The main goal is to help students become innovative problem-solvers and creators.
New educator skills
The educator of the future is agile, can activate students’ investigative skills, and has creative abilities that allow them to innovate. In collaboration with companies, the educator of the future will put together a dynamic curriculum, in which innovative thinking and digital skills take centre stage. This way, we can achieve ‘lifelong learning’ for future generations of pupils and students.
In many ways, people are no longer separate from technology. It is, therefore, important to keep an eye on the moral side of technological developments, consider the implications for the world of tomorrow, and ensure we take important ethical considerations into account. We need to determine our boundaries and voice our opinions about how people and machines should work together.
Innovative educational methods
One of the biggest challenges teachers face is how to engage students who have grown up surrounded by smart devices. Today’s students have short attention spans, and educators need to reinvent their teaching methods to teach them effectively. By abandoning the one-size-fits-all approach and designing and implementing new teaching methods into the classroom, educators can accommodate their pupils’ learning needs.
The school of the future
The learning environments of the future are increasingly becoming 'informal learning spaces' – flexibly designed, rich in technology, with plenty of room for experimentation, self-directed learning, and active group work. Within these ‘learning labs’, students will work together and with reflection, using new learning technologies and materials, such as wearables, gaming and telepresence technology, and 3D printers, to develop prototypes.

Een crisis of recessie raakt veel sectoren en bedrijven. Tegelijkertijd ontstaan er veel kansen. Veel nu succesvolle bedrijven zoals Netflix, AirBNB, FedEx, Disney, Microsoft en zelfs Apple zijn opgericht in moeilijke tijden. Bedrijven als Lego en Ralph Lauren hebben zichzelf tijdens de laatste crisis opnieuw uitgevonden. Ze kozen voor nieuwe markten, andere businessmodellen en digitalisering. Amazon en Tesla gebruiken de huidige crisis om nog verder te groeien. Vele bedrijven zullen deze crisis ten onder gaan, omdat ze onvoldoende geïnformeerd en geïnspireerd zijn.
