Founded in 1999, the Institute for Infrastructure, Environment and Innovation (IMIEU) is a private non-profit organisation based in Brussels, Belgium, with an additional office in Amsterdam. IMIEU works in two main areas, both with the end goal to improve the management of investment risks and opportunities in sustainability.
- Consulting, research, and strategic advice related to infrastructure development and sustainability. We focus particularly on cases where there are conflicts regarding economic development and sustainability.
- Aid in the financing upscaling for innovations by grant search, but as well by the identification and search for seed and venture capital providers or assistance and coordination in the development of larger-scale special purpose vehicles (SPVs). This also includes consortium and sectoral platform development.
Over the past decade a closely-knit network of institutions (EU/International/National), industry (start-ups, SME and multinationals) academia and civil society have been developed in Europe, East Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and North America. IMIEU consists of a small and multidisciplinary group of staff with a strong international rooting and can work in a multitude of languages including Dutch, English, German, Spanish and French.
