Newsletter 2017

What exciting projects are we going to develop together in 2017?

A new merger of municipalities? The design and ‘greening’ of the new economy?
The shaping of a new cultural or convention centre? A more inclusive
labour market?
Boosting the experience in our cities and towns?

We wish you a lot of energy for 2017
and with our IDEA spirit we can help you make a difference.

The Green Team of IDEA Consult is in the final stages of completing the ‘Study on investment needs along industrial value chains’, which uses a value chain approach to identify specific investment needs, financing gaps and other obstacles to investment, as well as potential solutions to increase investments in the modernisation of industrial value chains. Industrial value chains benefit from coordinated and synchronised investments that link with the Juncker Plan, which aims to unlock over €315 billion of investment and deliver a targeted boost to economic sectors that create jobs and spur growth.
In the coming months, IDEA Consult will research Philanthropy for Culture in Flanders. With this study, we aim to bridge the current knowledge gap on the giving behavior to culture by households and companies. A perfect complement to our European work on crowdfunding4culture!
Industry modernisation in the EU
On behalf of the European Commission (DG Regio), IDEA Consult supports the regions of Tuscany, Madzowieke (Poland) and Slovenia in their two cross-regional initiatives for industrial modernisation (Tuscany: ‘high-precision farming’ and Madzowiecke/Slovenia: ‘High-speed production performance monitoring’).
IDEA advises regional authorities about the sharing economy
After the study on the shared economy in Brussels earlier this year, IDEA Consult is now working on a state-of-the-art report on this new form of use and consumption for the Government of Flanders.
IDEA Consult carried out the first regional study on the importance and impact of the Sharing Economy on companies. In the Brussels-Capital Region, the sharing economy accounts for between €17 million and €20 million in added value and more than €140 million in transactions. In 2020, these volumes are estimated to reach €100 million in added value and €750 million in transactions.
