IDEA has its own signature. The identity of our organisation can be recognised as follows:
- Research-based: We are committed to independent advice, based on research, facts and figures. IDEA researchers use validated quantitative and qualitative methodologies. We use our own frameworks for evaluation research, impact or environmental analyses.
- Multidisciplinary: IDEA’s teams and fields of expertise are highly complementary. Our analyses and solutions are fed from various perspectives: retail and leisure are closely related to a broader vision of core reinforcement, an economic spearhead policy requires adapted competences, a strategic plan requires a customised organisational model. We and our clients experience the added value of this multi-disciplinarity under one roof on a daily basis.
- Future-oriented: Our baseline ‘Thinking ahead’ is not a hollow slogan, but our daily adage and a verbal phrase of action. Our employees design innovative and sustainable solutions that focus on the long term. We are helping to design the future around smart specialisation, industrial modernisation, circular economy, lifelong learning and multilevel governance.
- An excellent network of partners: We set up a customised team of internal and external experts for each project and each individual question. IDEA, a knowledge organisation, belongs to a network of excellent experts. We are expanding our service portfolio through our sister companies MONDEA and Value Partners; on the one hand towards implementation (MONDEA), on the other hand in the field of real estate and advice regarding location (Value partners).
- Customer-focused: New insights, concepts and tools help us assist our clients in achieving a greater impact. We work within concluded agreements, communicate openly with our clients and are prepared to go “an extra mile”.
