Discovery Trips

Tekiu tailor-makes technical visits and exchanges between organisations internationally. Our language skills and international networks have allowed us to arrange meetings with prime ministers, CEOs and chairpersons at organisations with global reputations. Our focus is on Europe, but ultimately with an eye to the global context. We work iteratively with our clients, responding to their needs to deliver programmes beyond their expectations. Our core competencies include biotech and healthcare, research and innovation systems, energy systems, and the digital economy.


Tekiu also create strategy workshops and team-building activities for individuals and groups. Working closely with our clients, we develop programmes that integrate a unique combination of policy and design-thinking approaches, helping organisations to achieve their goals. We offer workshops as standalone events or integrated within the Discovery Trip package.

Doing It Together Science (DITOs)

Tekiu is one of 11 partners in a pan-European project about Citizen Science. Running over 3 years (2016-2019) under Horizon 2020 funding and co-ordinated by University College London, DITOs aims to build the institutional and policy foundations for sustained deep public engagement in science and technology in Europe.

Throughout the project, Tekiu will run Discovery Trips for key decision makers across Europe to learn about Citizen Science and its relevance to current policy and research agendas. By establishing a channel for knowledge transfer between citizen science communities, policy makers and academics, Discovery Trips will help to build capacity for the movement and enable future contributions to policy and research.
