Scientific Service Companies act as innovative problem solvers and facilitate applicable tailor-made solutions to industrial and societal challenges involving industry and academia. Being knowledgeable about research instruments and methods are a key feature of their competence. Solving societal challenges, like the current Covid-19 pandemic or climate change, requires such a fast translation of scientific insights into innovative remedies, products and processes.
