The Excellence Framework emphasizes the need to simultaneously pursue excellence across the societal, innovation, offering, and process dimensions to find a balance between short- and long-term goals and between efficiency and creativity. Excellence is to simultaneously meet societal requirements, innovation needs, offering desires, and efficiency requests through insightful internal and external collaboration. The Excellence Framework has been developed over the years, and the present version is described in the report Attractive Innovation Environment published by Tekes (now Business Finland).

Synocus, together with Tsinghua University, was a founding partner of the World Alliance for Low Carbon Cities (WALCC) in 2012. Through the WALCC we have participated actively in research on low-carbon and urban development. Our collaboration with the WALCC has involved Aalto University, the University of Tampere, the University of Turku, Malmö University, UC Berkeley, and the University of Tokyo, to mention some of our key research partners. An example of the results is the Orchestrating sustainable development report published by Aalto University in 2016.
