Research-based user-driven innovation

Our work with research and innovation responds to issues of social relevance, primarily the needs of businesses and organisations to get access to the latest research results with the aim of creating innovative solutions. We have a special approach to application-oriented IT research that we call research-based user-driven innovation. By involving users in our research projects, we aim to create products and services of commercial relevance.

Our research and innovation projects constitute the engine that creates new knowledge of benefit to the participants in the projects. We also bring this knowledge into play in our consultancy services and our innovation networks.
