Training and Knowledge Management

Knowledge: NTU’s driving force for addressing our clients’ challenges

NTU’s knowledge management system involves three major elements: skilled people, dedicated processes, and state-of-the-art technological tools  all focused on our constant improvement and creation of value for our customers. Every project is unique and every client has new questions. Our intention to encompass this uniqueness drives NTU’s knowledge management framework and allows to deliver best possible solutions to our clients.

Research and Innovation

NTU puts a significant focus on Research and Innovation projects, where together with our partners, we work on global challenges looking for new solutions. NTU has been extensively working on the research and innovation projects with EIT-Climate KIC, on Horizon 2020 (and its precedent programmes FP5, FP6, FP7), and the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) – to name a few.

Our experience refers to all stages of the innovation projects: Ideation, Research & Feasibility Screening, Business Modelling, Piloting, and Commercialization.
