Research & Development (F&E)

Since the beginning of its activity EnviCare® Engineering GmbH always put the highest priority on participating in research and development projects.

Professional Workflow in order to achieve best results

As a starting point of each research and development contract, an analysis of the state of the art of technology or science is carried out, as well as – if necessary – a patent search. The exact definition of the task and expected findings/innovations represents a further significant step. Founded on the existing steady and informal contact with renowned research institutions a targeted approach is provided. Of course, an accompanying funding and project management is the basis for a successful research and development progress.
