We create new opportunities.

Research is not created in a vacuum, it is intended and carried out for people, for the economy and for society. That is why we attach great importance to exchanging information with stakeholders from a wide variety of fields as well as to informing them about our research results. From university to market, from technology to product, process or business model, from theory to practice: we ensure that research reaches its target.
