We develop your innovations exclusively for your company

Contract Research

We develop your innovations exclusively for your company. Together with you as a development partner, we raise potentials with a competitive advantage within the framework of contract research. For the last meters up to the conversion into the series we adapt for it your ideas or solutions from our extensive development results exactly to your market and your production processes. Although these results are developed exclusively for you, this form of cooperation is also very attractive in terms of costs due to the new research allowance (Law on Tax Subsidies for Research and Development).

Our broad network - impetus for our publicly funded projects

Funded projects

Our broad network steers the impetus for our publicly funded projects. In our main topics of miniaturization, functionalization, lightweight construction, digitalization/KI and sustainability/recycling, we maintain an active network with companies in these areas and beyond. Together with our advisory boards, we shape the challenges of the industry and concrete needs from industry into research projects of general interest, which are then publicly funded and available to you as a secure pool of ideas. We provide you with an overview of all current projects (recently completed or currently in progress) that may be of particular interest for transfer to your company.
