Work with Us

When we run a workshop, we like to collect people in a room and surprise them with their own ingenuity. We have a special place in our hearts for flip-charts and post-its, but we also love technology and lead rich virtual lives. We’ve designed and developed a number of intriguing ways to interact and invent using every kind of method: in person and virtual, high touch and high tech. We’ve been doing this for more than a decade, which has given us the opportunity to refine how help government agencies, funding bodies, universities and other organizations to accelerate scientific and academic innovation.

How might you work with us? It might depend on who you are:

cat_city I’m going to attend a Knowinnovation workshop.

I’ll be a participant at a Sandpit, an Ideas Lab or another event facilitated by KI. I’ve heard that these workshops aren’t like any other meeting I’ve attended before and I’d like to get an idea of what to expect.

white_coats I’m responsible for improving research at my University.

I need to engage academics across disciplines and accelerate how we produce new research ideas. I’d like to build communities of researchers with overlapping expertise for interdisciplinary collaboration.

wondering_howI’m a Program Officer at a funding agency.

I work at a science funding agency – or at an NGO – and I’m interested in learning how Sandpits and Ideas Labs could be used to address some of the challenges in the communities I serve.

this_wayI’m interested in Training for myself or my team.

My organization needs a boost in the creativity department. I am looking for ways to help increase our creativity and problem-solving skills, which may or may not include running a workshop.
