What we do: The Mission

We pursue academic research through our affiliation with universities and we further R&D by forming university-industry partnerships. Through amalgamating scientific research with industrial R&D, we develop innovative technologies that enable the establishment of new areas of expertise for our partners. We initiate, plan, lead and execute scientific, R&D and venture projects.
