There are many ways to share knowledge. This is how we help ensure joint research projects that fit into our development areas see the light of day. Essentially we encourage ideas at an early stage and test the application of new methods. We also draw on the research and expertise of universities. We impart knowledge on procedures, innovation management and open innovation in practice by giving talks. In addition, PFLab also offers exciting traineeships, internships and thesis opportunities.

Working with the PFLab team has been a really eye-opening, inspiring experience. Our students and everyone on the programme appreciate the insight they’ve gained into the challenges of innovation and the workings of large companies, and they benefit from being able to speak to innovation experts in person.
