Newsletter issue 8: Guideline for Business models Selection



End of a project, the beginning of the Innovation

During the two year lifetime of the INSPIRE project, its consortium has investigated the future trends and their influence on the business models for the industry as they are now.

Together with organisations in the process industry, related European projects and other stakeholders, PNO, TNO, CNR and ZLC have validated their findings and developed several tools, a business model innovation game and guidelines for business models selection. Apart from this, the consortium visited 32 events in which they validated their findings with surveys.

This newsletter is dedicated to showing the findings of the consortium and results of the project, but INSPIRE doesn’t end here. By spreading the tools, guidelines and game through the process industry, the consortium hopes to help organisations adapt to these changing (mega)trends in the future. The INSPIRE results will also be used for other projects like the NextNet project.


INSPIRE tools are available online!

During the INSPIRE project, a set of tools was developed to help Industrial players and other stakeholders in the value chain to reevaluate their business model innovation (BMI) strategy and make smart adjustments to maximize results. These tools provide background information on major trends and enabling technologies that may change business models in the process and manufacturing sector. Read more about the tools and download them on the INSPIRE website.
