Inova DE GmbH was created in late 2013 as an independent economic entity within the INOVA+ company with offices in Porto, Lisbon, Brussels and Warsaw. Counting now with more than 16 years of experience, a highly qualified team, and partners all across Europe, it strives to differentiate itself from other consulting and applied research companies with a personalized and customer oriented project management.
We specialize in medical product development (Software and Hardware), from idea to final product on a variety of medical fields.
It stands as the 11th most funded SME by the former EU Framework Program 7.
Having a sound proposal with a well defined impact, quality and diversity of consortium with an excellent idea is fundamental to pass the evaluation threshold and be considered for EU or national funding. Project proposals are only accepted if the formalism is adequate and the expected impact is reasonable, foreseeable and, in many cases preferably near to market. To increase the success rate of submitted proposals, assistance in drafting, writing, planning and managing such projects is deemed necessary.
This includes keeping to deadlines, building the proper consortium with necessary minimum number of European partners, knowledge and understanding of the appropriate calls, meeting the expected criteria regarding the exploitation of projects results.
This is the service that we offer and will help you maximize the chances of success.
Our research focus lies mostly in medical product research as detailed in our R&D project results.
The strong pressure to innovate requires projects to be optimized to develop the concept and prototypes rapidly. Inova provides Research and Development activities to our industry partners. This service includes not only applied research but as well development from the idea up to a product, project management at an European level, Information and Communication Technologies applied to healthcare, sustainable cities and smart buildings to infrastructure safety.
Inova develops solutions with direct practicable value to technical challenges and organizational problems, contributing to a wide scale implementation of new technologies. By joining the acquired knowledge of different research partners, integrating old and new technologies into innovative solutions we bring the benefits to industry partners of all sizes. Of particular interest is this service to small and medium enterprises that do not wish to maintain their own R&D department.
We specialize in ICT tools for medicine and healthcare, though our interests also include embedded systems for multiple applications.
Project management at Inova DE aims to support companies to access European and National funding, and to raise awareness among the available opportunities.
Projects are carried out in close cooperation with partners from multiple European countries, and as a result partners in research or industry are sought to participate in these innovation initiatives.
We support our partners in all project management activities, we can call on experts from all kinds of disciplines for advice and have access to the best contacts for carrying out the necessary research and development. With the proper research fund for these activities Inova DE offers their assistance in improving the project outcome, and strive to meet the set deadlines and milestones.
Inova DE has an international orientation concerning our partner organizations. It supports the development of innovative initiatives from small to large scale. With a broad network Inova DE aims to extend and/or strengthen these connections in order to facilitate further R&D projects, and maximize their impact. With this approach we encourage our partners to integrate European cooperative projects, aiming to an easier integration in a dynamic environment with large dimension.
Inova DE supports innovative ideas and helps to define research and development projects. Here we present a selection of our past and on-going research projects.
CAST – CArdiac measuring Shirt for Telemedicine
SUSS 3DP – SUrgical Simulation Software for 3D printing
PhotonicPill – Endoscopic Capsule for diagnosis and therapy based on photonics
The European Union is a world leader in research and innovation. However, over the past decade emerging economies throughout the world continue to strengthen their research and innovation systems while global challenges continue to drive and demand commitment from R&D.
To foster R&D competitiveness and increase the SME’s revenue at an European level, the European Commission has finalized a budget for Horizon 2020 – The Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. This Europe-wide funding and development plan replaces the Framework Programme 7 as of 1st of January 2014 as the main financial mechanism to support R&D across all disciplines.
Specially for SME’s the European Horizon 2020 programme offers unprecedented conditions to tech and manufacturing SME’s including about 9bn€ of available funding. Within this panorama, Inova DE supports companies, universities and research institutes to tap into European support programmes. The cooperation with European partners increases the competitivity and market opportunities, within as well as outside the European market.
Additionally Inova DE offers assistance with German National funding programs. Further information about current possibilities of support in certain areas of technology as well as networking with the right partners can be obtained through a simple contact with us.
