Our story... How we created ISK Consulting SA

ISK stands for Innovation, Strategy and Knowledge



Once upon a time

Dr valerie Merindol, an analyst on innovation related policies, and Dr David W. Versailles, an economist and epistemologist trained in industrial organisation, met as they were positioned in the French Ministry of Defense. After a couple of years in the central administration, they transitioned to the French Air Force in order to install the Research center of the French Air Force and contribute to the reform of the French Air Force Academy.

A shift towards consulting

In 2009, after the end of their mission in the French Defense, Dr David W. Versailles turned to business consulting and transfered to the Brussels-based consulting company Open Solutions SA/NV. He created there a business unit in charge of strategic business modeling, of knowledge management, and of the governance of industrial complex programs. Most activities were commissioned by European agencies (ESA, EDA, EUROCONTROL), with projects mobilizing at the same time Open Solutions SA/NV and the Luxembourg-based company OBIZCO SARL, and the same network of stakeholders. After some time, Dr David W. Versailles moved the business unit to Luxembourg inside OBIZCO SARL. During the same years, Dr Valerie Merindol joined the French Observatoire des Sciences et des Techniques (OST) in order to develop the portfolio of research and consulting activities in relation with innovation policies in Europe.





Nov. 2017: creation of the company

A change of governance in OBIZCO SARL has made it relevant to autonomize the business unit and incorporate it in Luxembourg at the end of 2017.
