Research – Our core competences

In our research we tackle the themes that are key to the future of print and media technology. Our research is publicy funded or requested by companies on a project-specific basis (contract research). We are in constant dialogue with companies to identify subjects for investigation that are geared to their requirements. For us, delivering the results of our research in usable form is a given.

Our current research projects can be found in our current research programme. We are currently working on topics such as artificial intelligence in image quality, printing standards for seven-color offset packaging printing, and lifespan simulation of smart cards. Here you can find information about all projects or our research reports.
