Individual contract research

The typical case of cooperation: The company sees a need for research or development; it wants to bring a product innovation to the market, improve a process or have a process tested and certified. A discussion with Fraunhofer shows which solutions are available, which collaborations are suitable and what expenditure is to be expected. The cooperation - whether limited or extensive - aims to solve the problem and introduce the innovation to the market.
