Research & Development, Standardisation
A certain amount of our time we spend for research and development. We prefer participating in advisory boards of R&D-projects. This is definitely a midterm approach, but it creates a better understanding for active R&D groups and infrastructure. We contribute with our feedback and support interpretations of results. If appropriate, we involve ourselves in design of new projects. We see our role in transmission from technology to industry and vice versa.
Once a subject is going to become of certain importance, we join the DIN groups for standardisation e.g. for execution of steel works for offshore structures.
