We believe that research is the first step towards innovation that can solve problems for people. Therefore, our activities start with basic research and cover the entire value chain via applied research to product development.
We collaborate with companies and clusters and team up with the best players and competences to bring ideas to life. We are always open for new collaboration projects with industry partners.
We organise our research activities in six centres and sections each having a specific research focus. Read more about the research areas, publications, projects and achievements by clicking on a centre or section below.
