Construction products must be constantly adjusted to meet the needs of a dynamic and international market. Innovations, new specifications and techniques for materials and designs as well as ongoing tightening of existing regulations lead to an ever broader range of performance characteristics and product parameters. Product development can no longer be left to chance, but must be consistent and structured in order to keep pace with a globalized world.
Research & development is therefore a strategic prerequisite for securing a sustainable market position. The participation of manufacturers, suppliers and other service providers ensures us practical relevance and the participants themselves a platform for innovation and cooperation on a cross-sector and cross-company level.
Therefore, the ift-think tank offers creative and open access to ideas and projects that have already been accepted and for which we are still looking for collaborators, but also the opportunity for existing and future research partners, clients and other interested parties to submit their own project proposals and ideas.
