One-off contracts – R&D on behalf of industry and public institutions#
The classic model of cooperation: A company perceives a need for research or development – for example it wants to launch an innovative product, improve a method or technique, or optimize a production process.
From first contact to contract proposal
A discussion with Fraunhofer IGB identifies possible solutions and clarifies the form the partnership could take and the estimated cost for the R&D or analysis order resulting in a contract proposal. Confidentiality is our uppermost concern, inquiries will be kept strictly confidential. If requested, we will sign a non-disclosure agreement before receiving any confidential information from you.
Contracts and agreements
Reliable and fair contractual terms for customers are the utmost priority. Our scientists and engineers are supported by an experienced contract department within the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft.
Fraunhofer IGB researchers have plenty of experience in running projects efficiently and fairly. Our R&D is subject to careful and continuous assessment in terms of time and costs and geared towards a successful conclusion of the project.
As a further service for customers, Fraunhofer IGB offers training for staff with regard to the introduction of new processes and technologies. The training may take place at the customer´s premises.
