About Three o'clock

Research and innovation with and for society

Co-creation and participation is more than our method – it's our mindset.

We introduce participatory design in research and innovation projects.

We strongly believe in the power of co-creation — bringing stakeholders, users and citizens into the creative development process — to get to better solutions, with more impact.

How we do it

User research

Understanding needs and challenges and mapping opportunities through interviews, testing, focus groups and surveys

Co-design

Making users active players in the development of research and innovation through co-design and co-creation

Stakeholder engagement

Building relationships and strong communities through events, workshops and two-way communication
