BGS is innovative through research: For our activities and investments in research and development, we have received the official seal “Innovative through Research” from the Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft e.V. (Donors’ Association for the Promotion of Sciences and Humanities in Germany).
In collaboration with universities, leading research institutes as well as in close cooperation with our customers, we work continually on the development of new irradiation applications and the improvement of existing products through applied and experimental research. The focus of our activities at present is the development of new, crosslinkable materials, alternative crosslinking aids and solutions for the sustainability of radiation-crosslinked parts and components. As part of the German innovation network ZIM (Central Innovation Programme) MED-IG-4.0, we are additionally working to further accelerate the progress of the Internet of Things in the medical sector. For example, we analyse together with 22 other medium-sized enterprises the need for intelligent products and systems from thermoplastic materials, we develop new products and improve existing solutions. We have been honoured now for the first time with the seal “Innovative through Research” for our achievements in the area of research and development.
By means of applied research and experimental development, we shall continue to work in the future on new materials, products and new applications in irradiation technology at our locations in Wiehl, Bruchsal and Saal a.d. Donau, amongst other things, for medical technology, biotechnology and the automotive industry. Annual investments are planned in the mid-six digit range.
Stifterverband is one of the largest private promoters in Germany in the field of education, science and innovation. Apart from its commitment to young academics, excellent universities and cutting-edge research, its task is also to analyse and evaluate the German research and innovation system. How much does the economy invest in research and development in Germany? What impact does this have on the future viability of this country? These questions are the focus of a survey, FuE-Erhebung, which the German Stifterverband (Science Statistics) carries out annually on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
