SERVICES OF RTOs

DEDICATED TO THE DEVELOPMENT AND DEPLOYMENT OF TECHNOLOGIES

OFFERING A BROAD ARRAY OF SERVICES IN RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

Research and technology organizations (RTOs) are public or private organizations dedicated to the development and transfer of science and technology to the benefit of the economy and society. RTOs’ technologies cover various scientific fields and their work ranges from basic research to new product and service development. RTOs closely cooperate with other RTOs, industries, SMEs, start-ups, as well as a wide array of public actors.

COLLABORATION FORMS

DEMAND-DRIVEN RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

Forms of collaborations differ; from public finance research projects to contract research. Research and technology organizations offer R&D services and innovations in all application-relevant fields of expertise.

CONTRACT RESEARCH

COLLABORATION WITH THE PRIVATE SECTOR

Companies of all sizes in the industrial and service sector benefit from contract research. Companies that collaborate with RTOs tend to be more innovative and successful, and are more likely to launch new products and services.  RTOs represent an important source of innovative know-how for small and medium-sized companies that do not have their own R&D departments. For their industry customers, RTOs develop and optimize technologies, processes and products right up to the production of prototypes and small batch series.
