The Research Programme comprises several thematic Programme Areas, each addressing problems of great interest to a consor tium of Innventia customers. Such a Programme area operates over several years, three years planned.
Some important characteristics for the Programme Areas are that they:
- consist of several Pre-competitive Themes, thereby developing new knowledge or new combinations of knowledge to be used for new technical solutions and applications in
- one or several Application oriented research projects, that can give results to be developed fur ther to industrial reality together with customers through client projects
We use the term Pre-competitive Research to mark projects and activities of a more generic nature. The Pre-competitive Research is idea and science driven. It is intended to take advantage of scientific oppor tunities and provide Innventia customers with cutting edge knowledge and exper tise that will enhance the capability for future technical development and applications.
As a customer you can choose to participate in the Pre-competitive Research (leveraged by public funding) in one or more Application oriented projects or initiate projects by your own.
We believe that this model gives a high degree of flexibility between pre-competetive research and application oriented research, both area-based and value chain-based.
The programme areas and projects are continuously subject to prioritisations, due to on-going changes for the industry that can affect the direction of R&D investments. Participation in Innventia Research Programme 2015 means opportunities to influence areas and content.
