Ideas moving us forward

Our definition of innovation

Derived from the Latin word innovation = renewal our main concern is to get innovations that go beyond mere further development of technologies and products. Market readiness and the prospect of its implementation in practical use, are crucial here. When it comes to science and research, new ways of thinking are much appreciated. Innovative results in research must not necessarily be linked to market readiness.
