ARCHES is a private, non-profit organization specialized in knowledge management and multi-stakeholder networking. Our mission is to actively contribute to the advancement of knowledge, and provide support for the development and implementation of EU policies for research and innovation. In line with the Europe 2020 Strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, our Centre aims above all at the creation of knowledge by establishing collaborations with universities and research organizations and by supporting the training of young scientists. ARCHES also acts as an intelligent interface able to connect the global research community with industry and with policy makers at all levels. Acting as a boundaryless organization along the entire research and innovation chain, ARCHES creates the conditions to achieve the speed, flexibility and integration needed to survive and thrive in today’s globally competitive environment. In 2009, ARCHES co-founded Knowledge4Innovation (K4I), the leading innovation platform within the environment of the EU Institutions. In 2015 it signed a co-operation agreement with Fraunhofer MOEZ (now IMW), the 'Fraunhofer Centre for International Management and Knowledge Economy' to successfully make use of global opportunities in the field of science, technology and innovation, with a specific focus on India.
