We support the manufacturing industry through industry-driven research. We can then elaborately test and validate the research results using our own high-tech research infrastructure and, as such, close the gap between research and concrete application. Companies work together with us in many different ways to find solutions to their technological challenges. Thanks to these varied forms of cooperation, companies have the opportunity to co-control long-term research from the front seat or to implement an innovation within a short period of time. In this way, we create added value for the whole manufacturing industry.
