HOW WE DO IT
How we do it
These relationships are developed between our European laboratories and various external technological partners, such as universities, R&D centres, and industrial organizations. The focus is on emerging technologies that when combined with Konica Minolta’s internal competencies can create novel solutions that drive the transformation of future digital workplaces, digital healthcare and digital manufacturing.
Konica Minolta Laboratory Europe has a broad portfolio in many research areas, such as Computer Vision and Image Processing, IoT, Semantic Technologies and Smart Data Systems, and Distributed Robotics. As part of the Global R&D group within Konica Minolta Inc., our laboratory is eager to collaborate and share its ideas and innovations, and to take part in research challenges with a growing network of academic and industrial technological partners.
IPN FOR R&D CENTRES AND UNIVERSITIES
With the IPN, we establish collaborations with R&D centres that are able to support a technology transfer and build on the body of their research knowledge to direct this towards the industry domain. We actively include public fund opportunities in the management of our project portfolio and participate in several exchange programmes that support student mobility.
Co-Develop solutions with innovative technologies and collaborate on their transfer to industrial applications.
IPN FOR INDUSTRIAL ORGANIZATIONS
With the IPN, we target companies that manage hospitals, manufacturing facilities, retails or back office activities that are willing to share their current issues and challenges and may benefit from our technologies. If you become an early adopter of our solutions, we may design together new services that can help you to address their problems.
