Expert advice at critical moments

Advisory Services

Vector Center facilitates, outcome-oriented, scenario-based gatherings to brainstorm ideas on solving critical water, food, and energy issues. Convenings are often held on specific issues, such as California’s ongoing drought or Mongolia’s water-limited GDP strategy. By applying the same dynamic process used by NASA, U.S. Air Force, Boeing and the World Economic Forum, Vector Center captures, workshops, prototypes, tests and implements responses in a fraction of the time allowed by conventional approaches.

Past engagements include:
