The team does research and development work (R&D) and plays a role in collaboration projects between the industry and the R&D environment. An important task is to give information about the offers of R&D funding from innovation agencies. In addition, the team organizes and coordinates the application work for cluster companies and R&D partners.
There’s a substantial need to increase the scope of and cooperation in R&D among the members, and there’s great potential. Stimulating measures for preparing applications increase the R&D resources. This causes a considerable snowball effect and creates growth and increased profitability on a short and a long-term basis.
