Standing on its scientific and project management expertise, the CRM Group participates to incremental and breakthrough R&D projects, co-engineering projects, application-oriented projects (solutions or systems) and technical assistance actions to support its industrial Members. These projects can be carried-out in the frame of either collective or private research programmes, which are shaped in close cooperation with our Member companies and are thus focused on the essential needs of the industry, aiming at fast and reliable industrial deployment. Although a major part of these projects remains focused on steel, the CRM group develops a growing activity towards the production and use of other metals (Cu, Zn, …) and in transversal fields such as energy, recycling and valorisation of by-products.
On top of that, we have definitely set our course to being a favourite partner not only for our Member companies but also for external companies, with a special focus on small-and medium-sized firms (SMEs). Our technical services and assistance are available to all companies finding themselves faced with problems in the processing and application of metallic materials, for which the CRM Group will always be an attentive and effective development partner.
Moreover, in order to reduce the initial costs incurred by our R&D customers, we ensure that our projects are making the best use of the various funding possibilities at regional, federal or European levels.
