A key player for your innovation needs

We assist industry, academic and clinical partners with defining, funding and researching their innovative ideas and new product development goals with a focused consultancy service and technical development support.

What we do

At Inova DE we have two focus of business development: Innovation Management and Software Development.

Both are complementary and synergetic. While we write project proposals for our customers to obtain EU and national funding, we are also often participants in our own proposals and product development.

This way we know the insides and outsides of state-of-the-art research and development projects; funding possibilities and chances; technical dependencies and market; the pitfalls and opportunities of project writing and management. We have an international and vast experience in the field of ICT and digitalization and we can assist you to reach your objectives faster, with less internal resources and more external support.
