Research, development and innovation at White
White engages in R&D (research and development) and innovation to take responsibility for positive social development, as well as to educate the architectural industry worldwide. As a practice at the forefront of R&D, we offer a varied added value offer to our clients, partners and employees.
White Research Lab is our organisation for practical research, environmental monitoring and knowledge transfer. Through our competence networks, we capture current challenges, exchange experiences and knowledge, and monitor the front in our various fields.
White Innovation Lab is our organisation for exploring new ideas with the goal of bringing them to market. Here we transform creativity into concrete business offers for a sustainable future.
Together, the Research Lab and the Innovation Lab support practical R&D and innovation both internally and in collaboration with the industry at large, with the goal of creating a better society for everyone. We also allocate funds to our external research foundation, ARQ.
In parallel with our business plan, we develop a new research program every three years, with the aim of drawing up guidelines for the exploratory initiatives of the coming years. We also lead several large R&D projects with external funding. Through our doctoral students and colleagues who are part-time professors, lecturers, and assistant professors, we establish long-term collaborations within the academic world that strengthen our practice.
