We make science
a collective process

Stickydot is a Brussels collective that shapes research and innovation through multi-stakeholder engagement and co-creation


MOSAIC - Stickydot
Co-creating innovation processes to tackle Mission city challenges across Europe

We offer

We co-create and implement innovative tools for dialogue, online or in person. These tools are participatory methodologies that bring people of different profiles together to align views, seek consensus and share their input.

With research and innovation in particular, we work to make these processes more responsive to societal needs. We do this by bringing government, industry, researchers and civil society into dialogue around the R&I process.

We work with researchers, civil society and industry partners to open up science to the general public, from science communication to empowering the citizen as scientist.

Through group training workshops, we share our skills and techniques in dialogue, facilitation and science engagement with communities of professionals from a range of sectors.

From desk research to full-scale project evaluation, we work with you to provide insight about the impact of science and society programmes, projects and events.

We are experienced in collaborative science and society projects: from conceiving the initial idea, building a project team and writing successful funding applications to managing large international projects, particularly within an EU framework.
