  12. The market as a meeting place • So as a modern, large organization Odyssee is a value-oriented, cooperative organization, driven by contemporary forms of its profession to the customers • The customer decides what is good for him or her • We are focussing on the customer and try to develop partnerships with customers and their networks • This means: you know from each other what really matters; all what is considered as mutual essential will be treated and translated into tailor-made projects • For this reason we also strive for sustainability in our relation with customers, constituents and their networks.

  13. New client needs

  15. Central issue in the guidance of development - and change processes of individuals and organizationsis the relationship between learning and changing . We contribute to the development of individuals and groups to free, self-confident people who design and construct in an active way their individual and social life in society Learning in our concept is always an integral approach of knowledge, attitude and skills

  16. The Odyssee Compass • Meaning and concrete interpretation of personal and social life is of importance, and values like freedom, self-development, social equality, autonomy, emancipation, social involvement, solidarity, justice, balance between action and silence, protection of violence…… • These ideas are no quotations of the people - and society vision of the seventies, but it are the corner stones in Odyssee's new mission and vision document

  17. Odyssee offers its customers an European, c.q international orientation concerning knowledge development and knowledge transfer The European Union must become the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based society in the world Odyssee is yearly as partner or coordinator involved in ±10 transnational projects

  18. The knowledge triangle R&D unit • Research = the creation of knowledge • Education = the dissemination of knowledge • Innovation = the application of knowledge

  19. The way forward ….. Spreading knowledge through high quality education systems is the best way of guaranteeing the long-term competetitiveness of the Union. (Mid-term review of the Lisbon Strategy)
