research & innovation

In the world we live in, the need to reinvent is an existential necessity.

Truth be told, there’s hardly a company that is immune to new disruptive technologies like ‘automation and artificial intelligence’. The future belongs to organisations who can constantly innovate and repeatedly bring new products and services to the market.

where to start

Throw us a wicked challenge that you’re currently facing.

  • Our team of in-house researchers and students will join forces with your team to initiate practice-based research and create concrete deliverables that can be tested in real time for impact and iterated before moving to next sprint.

  • We strongly believe in co-creation and understand that radically innovative solutions come from combining technological possibilities with human-centred design, low-fi prototyping and constantly iterating your way forward.

idea to action

So you’ve got an exciting idea, now how do you bring it to life?

Turning ideas into reality requires a constant process of ideating, prototyping and iterating. It takes time, focus and combination of skills to ensure that the raw idea becomes a real product.

making ideas happen

At Pulsed we have experience in developing multiple digital and physical products.

  • On the one hand for the purpose of learning and development of our own students and teachers. And on the other hand in cooperation with partners who wanted to realise ideas that came out of the interventions we organised together.

  • Thanks to our intensive collaboration with Studio Tast, we can often speed up the realisation process and are also able to adapt to any budget. A lo-fi prototype of a board game for Tranzo.

social events & hackathons

Culture of innovation starts with making people part of the change.

If you want to take the next big leap, it’s important to involve people from the very beginning. Our high-energy social events are a unique way to trigger creativity and empower your team to generate bold ideas.

tailor-made experiences

Together with you, we tailor the whole process to your goals & ambitions.

  • Within an exciting pressure cooker setting participants are encouraged to come up with innovative concepts for a well-crafted challenge.

  • Leave your worries, outside the door. We set up the whole process, develop all the necessary materials in-house and if desired, we arrange everything from A to Z (location, food & drinks etc).

Our strength is that we can always activate mbo & hbo students of all disciplines and nationalities to participate in the event. This way the next generation can directly contribute fresh ideas and the actions stay focussed on the future.


When it comes to designing education, doing beats talking about doing.

There are way too many educational conferences out there, where you can sit in a ‘listening position’, have all sorts of wisdom poured at you and then go home with perhaps some inspiration. We believe that if you want to design a solid educational program with your team, #ConstructiveAlignment is the key.

how we do it

We offer 3-day immersive educational expeditions where teachers from across the country come together to take ownership of their (re)design process.

  • Our participants achieve real results both in terms of team & vision development and takeaway concrete materials that they can apply immediately.

  • We also create tailor-made (re)design expeditions which can be fully customised in terms of process, duration and intensity to the needs and wishes of your organisation.
