We would like to provide four examples:

For: SPITS Gent – mobility experts
Question: How can business contribute to mobility-solutions in order to prevent gridlocks from occurring in the city of Gent?
Project trajectory: 1 multistakeholder session

The city of Gent is looking to prevent gridlocks from happening using sustainable mobility solutions. Business life plays a role in this issue and holds responsibility here. As part of a larger research trajectory, Cornelis Serveert provided an in-depth session in which we challenged said business to find a solution in collaboration with government and researchers, to keep Gent appealing and accessible. This led to, among others, a shared vision regarding the integration of mobility in human resources. Read more in our Recipe for the Future. 

For: TU Delft (Delft University of Technology) Library
Question:  What will be the direction of the university library in 2020-2024?
Project trajectory: 10 months of process supervision and development of a strategy roadmap
Cornelis Serveert supported the TU Delft Library in their development of a strategy roadmap for the Library of the future. We designed a collective thinking process, in which management  and users (students, teachers, researchers, and staff) determined the course of action. We translated the results of this process into a plan which constitutes the foundation of everything that the university library does between 2020 and 2024.

For: Province of Utrecht, and the municipalities of Utrecht, Amersfoort, and Hilversum
Question: How can we create a definitive regional economic agenda, in collaboration with business and educational institutions?
Project trajectory: 8 meetings
The Province of Utrecht and the municipalities of Utrecht, Amersfoort, and Hilversum collaborated on a regional economic agenda. Before the definitive agenda was created, they wanted to engage in a dialogue with business, regional authorities and educational institutes. What could be more defined, which additions were still missing? Cornelis Serveert organised 8 meetings to gather refining perspectives. The results formed the foundation for the definitive and widely supported agenda.


For: Marine Stewardship Council: MSC quality mark for
Question: How can sustainable fish consumption become the standard across the country?
Project trajectory: 1 multistakeholder session
The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) wanted to sharpen the outlines of the MSC quality mark for sustainable fishing, and at the same time uncover where the chain of sustainable consumption falters. We organised a multistakeholder meeting in which important links in the chain (fishers, supermarkets, and researchers) could sink their teeth into these challenges. In a constructive dialogue insights and recommendations were shared. This exchange made up the starting point for a number of strategic action points.
