Tekiu facilitates different perspectives

through Discovery Trips, Workshops & Policy Research

What we offer

Tekiu is in the business of knowledge transfer, international benchmarking and workshop facilitation. We create the circumstances for people to discover something new, with an emphasis on international and interdisciplinary knowledge exchange.

Working closely with our clients, we develop programmes for trips and workshops that bring new light to a subject. We drive forward organisational thinking and help participants to break free from professional silos.


Our expertise

We organise high-quality technical visits and facilitate workshops in the fields of life sciences, healthcare, citizen science, engineering and environmental science. The team have broad expertise in research and policy analysis, and we are open to consulting clients on a range of topics within science and innovation policy.

We are equally at home working with high-level policy makers, civil servants and industry decision makers for international policy exchange visits or with individuals from grassroots, civic society and community groups to explore science as culture through events and workshops.

Our history

The name Tekiu was phonetically derived from ‘tequio’, a concept that for the Nahuatl people means an organised form of work for communal benefit. At Tekiu, we believe that community is built by focusing on group experiences for the growth of individuals.

Tekiu has been running Discovery Trips for industry and government leaders to the Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany and the UK since 2012. We are also part of the Doing It Together Science project funded by the European Commission and have recently launched a programme to support UK-Turkish Collaborations (T-DEB), funded by Newton Fund and Innovate UK.
