scope design NEXT


To boost innovation we start our new initiative: SCOPE NEXT; a consortium of research institutes, knowledge centres, suppliers, and companies.

Scope NEXT focusses on innovations in early research stages that are likely to become relevant in the foreseeable future. All consortium partners contribute their know-how and expertise to envision opportunities and possible future applications of technologies, materials and know-how.

Insights are shared online with the ambition to stimulate innovative value-creation within and beyond our network.


The products of the future literally pass our hands every day and we feel responsible for our part in creating a more sustainable society.

In this consortium we will explore the development of sustainable products with integrated electronics that can be nearly 100% recycled on an industrial scale.

Focus will lie on reducing the footprint of products and services in production, materials, printed circuit boards, disassembly, and other themes that determine the Life Cycle Assessment.

Both in the Bio-Cycle (v’Eco) and Techno-Cycle (Raw Metals) we delivered awarded innovations that embody our ambition to implement sustainable product development.


Exploring the revolutionizing world of wearable technology is the core of the Smart Textiles project.

The integration of innovative electronics into soft goods products offers radical new possibilities in the fields of health monitoring, professional workwear, and athletic apparel.

The consortium behind this visionary initiative consists of inspirational partners such as CLB, Preston Ability and Radical Design.

Together we will translate future innovations and proven technologies into tangible and practical concepts that can be implemented in real-world situations.


We have all heard from it, probably used it in some way, but it has not reached our daily lives just yet. Welcome to the fascinating world of augmented and virtual reality, where we will explore the possibility to incorporate AR/VR into our daily (working) lives.

Together with innovative partners, we will share ideas on the supportive role of AR/VR that feel futuristic but are actually close to home.

Embrace the possibilities, as we explore the boundaries of immersive technology together.


With our extensive expertise across diverse industries, we are discovering new material applications. Our driving force is the strong ambition to innovate and discover new (sustainable) materials and finishes that enrich the experience of the world around us.

Future trends forecasting is an essential part of CMF (Colour Material and Finish) development. With the CMF consortium consisting of suppliers and materialists, we conduct material research and experiment with new production methods and materials.
