Applied research projects
Based on 'industry-as-laboratory' and 'application-as-laboratory' principles, ESI's applied research projects are conducted in collaboration with our industry partners - both OEMs and SMEs - and academia. The projects are based on strategic research topics emerging from industry or society challenges.
Research topics are derived from the Strategic Research Agenda and aim to capitalise on our existing exploratory research programmes.
As illustrated in the figure, the joint focus on an industrial problem provides practical solutions or solution strategies for industry, along with challenging new drivers for academic research.
