About SynchUp!

SynchUp! revolves around large companies that need an innovative solution for a problem they face, which we call challenges. We connect these companies to the innovative capacities of SMEs/start-ups. Not only do we bring them together, but we also maximise their chances of finding a successful solution through close guidance and proven methodologies. In the end, the goal is to develop concrete solutions and stimulate transitions.

Themes

We are convinced that (open) innovation and strong regional ecosystems are a powerful driver of change and can help significantly accelerate certain transitions. And that’s our goal with SynchUp!, focusing especially on relevant themes such as the transition to a circular and bio-based economy, or to industry 4.0.
