Bilateral research

When an industrial partner desires that a topic going beyond the state of the art – and thus falling clearly into the research category – should be treated confidentially, collaboration takes place on a purely bilateral level and is governed by an appropriate contractual arrangement.

When approached with a task that can be solved using methods that are already known in principle and which does not go beyond the current state of the art, we call this type of work a development project.

Funded Research

The BFI frequently addresses tasks for which no solution has yet been found that is fit for use in industrial environments. Opportunities exist for working on such topics within the scope of publicly funded projects. We can help you here in the following ways:

  • Formulating the terms of reference for a research project of general interest
  • Identifying a suitable funding programme
  • Setting up a national or international consortium
  • Coordinating and preparing a research proposal
  • Coordinating the research project once it has been approved
  • Preparation of reports, publications and presentations
  • Defence of the project before the funding authorities

About us

Company portrait

For nearly 50 years we have been proposing and developing solutions to meet your current and future challenges. We see ourselves as your research partner, putting our special expertise and long experience at your service in translating new findings into industrial practice.

As a non-profit research institute we maintain close contacts with the process industry. Through our shareholder Steel Institute VDEh we enjoy especially close connections with the steel industry and its federations and associations. We address emerging issues of major relevance in areas such as energy efficiency, process optimisation, measuring and instrumentation technology, and industry 4.0, and make them the focus of our work. In doing so, we systematically align our structures to your requirements in order to ensure that the research process will deliver the confidentiality (security), flexibility and speed that are so essential to industry.

As a research institute we network extensively on an international scale and are very familiar with the relevant national and European funding programmes. We have the skills and expertise to build and lead powerful consortiums and to tackle new research topics together with our partners in the process industry, whether in privately or publicly funded research programmes.
