Assessment and Analysis

We enhance your technology development by analyzing and assessing critical hotspots related to safety and sustainability, and collaboratively devising mitigation strategies based on the SSbD framework. Utilize our expertise in safety-related issues and protect human health and the environment within your R&D&I activities. Especially new materials are challenging when it comes to possible risks – let us develop strategies together to be as safe as possible. Together we can achieve sustainable technologies that equally serve people, planet and profit. Discover your sustainable potential with our guidance now.

Moreover, we can link you with an extensive network of partners to address any data gaps that arise and ensure steady progress towards your objectives.


Resilience and Regulatory Readiness

We strengthen your technology development by defining quality criteria as horizontal key elements, setting guidelines and providing methods to achieve them. Bring your innovation further and build trust by addressing quality from the beginning.

By offering insights from the latest national and international standardization activities and EU policy trends in the area of safety and sustainability, strategies are formulated to prepare your technology for upcoming EU work programs and future legislation.
