Applus+ in Colombia launches an R&D cell to drive innovation in the industrial sector


    Applus+ in Colombia has launched a specialized cell within its mechanical services division to strengthen its research and development (R&D) line. This new team will be dedicated to formulating, executing, and supervising R&D projects with technologies of interest to their clients.

    The new R&D cell will offer a comprehensive service that ranges from technological surveillance to the management and execution of innovative projects. The main goal of this project is to strengthen the client's innovation ecosystem by helping them conceptualize new processes and products, evaluate the technical and financial feasibility of exploratory pilot programs, and generate intellectual property assets. Additionally, the cell collaborates in the preparation of technical and budget reports and coordinates meetings with strategic allies, thus ensuring the development of advanced technologies that enhance the client's leadership in their industrial sector.

    The services provided include R&D activities such as technology surveillance and evaluation, project structuring and formulation, project execution and monitoring, the development of new knowledge products, scientific and technical dissemination, and the management of projects for the maturation and adaptation of new technologies in energy.

    One of the main challenges of the project is hiring high-profile professionals. To mitigate this risk, agreements with universities offering doctoral programs in relevant areas are planned.

    This new team aims to offer valuable support to clients in their innovation needs and achieve growth in the Latin American R&D market. The completion of the project promises substantial corporate growth in the R&D area, consolidating Applus+ position as a leader in research and development services.

    To communicate and disseminate the project's progress and results, monthly reports will be prepared to keep all interested parties informed about the progress and achievements. This approach ensures transparency and efficiency in project execution, guaranteeing that established objectives are met and benefits for clients and the company are maximized.

    Applus+ also has a broad portfolio of services based on technology and innovation to help our clients boost their productivity by relying on advanced technologies for the capture, management, and electronic delivery of inspection data, addressing their needs in new mobility, energy transition, electrification, and connectivity.
