Research Centres

Over the years, CreoTech’s team has established close ties to the leading research centres in Europe. These centres offer leading competencies in virtually all technology areas that exist in Europe. Importantly, the management of these research centres is open to joining projects in which they do not retain the Intellectual Property developed during the project.

Being an independent company without Research and Development function, CreoTech is not bound by our own R&D programme or self-interest. We are therefore able to be impartial and choose the most effective research partners for our clients and the project in question.

Here are some examples of research centers (RTOs) CreoTech could bring to your projects:

The basis for all work undertaken at the Fraunhofer IAO is a deep conviction that business success in a globalised arena is contingent on an ability to profitably leverage new high-tech potentials. In order to optimally exploit these opportunities, companies must be capable of developing and implementing customer and employee-oriented technologies faster than their competitors. Work organisation concepts must be simultaneously innovative and anthropocentric. A systematic design, in other words, is the outcome of pooled management and technical expertise. This holistic perspective when it comes to project processing ensures that equal consideration is given to commercial success, employees' interests and social consequences.

Finding solutions to organizational and technological challenges, particularly within the production environment of industrial enterprises. That, in a nutshell, is the key focus of the research and development work carried out at the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA. With 14 individual departments engaged in the fields of Corporate Organization, Automation and Surface Engineering, our R&D projects aim to enhance production processes and make products more cost-effective and environmentally friendly by identifying and exploiting the potential for automation and streamlining at clients’ companies. This helps to strengthen their international competitiveness.
