Product Innovation

About the Group

We investigate state of the art concepts and generate significant contributions related to the identification of demand from Rapid Growing Markets as well as characterization and application of accelerating technologies for product and process innovations. We also design and create reference models, methodologies and tools for Rapid Product Innovation and Realization. Our group creates and builds conceptual and functional prototypes of products in the areas of advanced manufacturing technologies (micromachines/micro-factories, 3D printers), sustainable technologies (solar energy, smart grids, green houses) as well as bio-medical devices and intelligent robots.

Research lines
