Accompanying research

We lead research projects to sustainable success by providing support in everything aside from technology development.

The development of highly innovative technologies is at the core of successful research projects. In the context of accompanying research, we support publicly funded R&D projects in their implementation by identifying and overcoming innovation hurdles, leveraging synergy effects with other projects and programs, working on open cross-cutting challenges on legal, ethical and social issues, but also on aspects of IT security or standardization and norming. From the very beginning, we work with the projects to develop future business models and identify ways to achieve viable commercial exploitation. At the same time, we ensure the transfer of results from the projects to the relevant economic sectors and industries as well as the political discourse and ensure efficient networking of the innovation policy programs with all relevant national and international stakeholders.
