Industrial Research Associations_640x360

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) play a central role in research and development (R&D) in Germany. It is also important for SMEs to pool their R&D resources because as a rule these businesses have insufficient or no research capacities of their own, especially with regard to more basic research.

Research-based companies and independent private research institutes have joined forces with the aim of carrying out industrial research especially for the SME sector.
