VRT SANDBOX supports collaborative innovation,

integrated in the media ecosystem of A PUBLIC BROADCASTER. 

 

onze projecten (nl)

Sandbox innoveert door projecten op te zetten binnen het VRT ecosysteem. Elk sandbox-project heeft een eigen DNA.

De basisregel: er wordt steeds voor een korte periode samengewerkt met één of meerdere externe partners of startups. Het moet een samenwerking zijn die werkt voor beide partijen en waar met we met een do-learn filosofie tot nuttige inzichten komen. Matchmaking is hierin een eerste belangrijke stap.

our projects (en)

The VRT Sandbox innovation is based on short term project within the VRT ecosystem. Each sandbox-project has a specific DNA.

The first rule: start a collaboration for a short period of time with one or more partners or startups. This collaboration should work for both parties. With a do-learn attitude we discover usefull insights.  

Matchmaking is an important step in this proces.
