The OFI accompanies research, development & innovation.

To ensure that products become and remain fit for the market, investments in research & development are worthwhile. One step ahead is to rely on the experts of the OFI, whose know-how is in demand in national and international projects.

Research is conducted on plastic components, photovoltaic modules, air filters, recycling processes and packaging solutions. What the research projects have in common is their objective: to use applied research and development to increase the quality of products, to make the use of resources more sustainable and to develop new methods so that the safety of products and processes can be measured in the future.

As a founding member of ACR (Austrian Cooperative Research), OFI focuses on applied research & development, in direct cooperation with industry – this should also benefit SMEs that do not operate their own research departments.
