3Product development and innovation services

From an idea to an innovation!

We can help you to work on and further specify your product or service idea. With our experts, you will be able to turn your idea into an innovation and your innovation into a ready-made product whose intellectual property rights, sales and marketing are all secured.

Combining research with the business world

We create opportunities to transfer competence between the worlds of research and business, between industries, and even between companies in the same industry. We bring researchers, research results and companies together to resolve challenges and problems that the companies are facing.

Competencies can involve technology, processes or business expertise, for example. In practice, competence is transferred in seminars, through training, at trade fairs and during company visits, for instance.
