We have extensive expertise, knowledge and experience in research and innovation activities and our development is supported in partnership with other research institutes with a strong focus on the manufacturing and production industry. We facilitate research necessary to drive a sector forward, to fund generic R&D and to stimulate the establishment of collaborative research consortia to carry out the R&D.
Descriptions of recent collaborative projects include the EU CLAFIS and CALIS projects, which focused on process automation, control, advanced processing, and monitoring. These projects aimed to ensure interoperability and standardization of data and knowledge in all areas. We were the main orchestrator behind these projects and played a pivotal role.
