We make the R&D process cost effective by utilizing our broad network of resources and contacts within industry and academia.
We have extensive experience developing specialized instruments for novel applications, which include the development of custom experimental tools and methodologies, and modifications and enhancements of existing equipment.
Modelling and Analysis
Some R&D problems will benefit from a modelling approach to speed development or answer a question that is too costly or unable to be observed experimentally.
For logistically-complex projects that involve multiple stakeholders, our management of the project can include both the development and deployment of products and services.
Some R&D projects require equipment that is too expensive to purchase or expertise that is far outside of a businesses core-capabilities. We'll help connect you with experts in academia who posses both the technical knowledge and infrastructure necessary to solve your problem. Government funding is readily available for these projects, often covering the majority share of the cost.
Numerous programs are available to help SMEs fund R&D activities: support for project capital costs, collaborations with academia, employee/contractor hiring, even attending trade shows and training programs. We'll help you identify opportunities and apply to the appropriate funding agency.
