“I find it very exciting when it comes to generating new topics and helping to shape things. You can integrate the knowledge gained in research projects, which develops you both professionally and personally, into committee work at the same time,” says Dr. Baitinger. Against this background, one of the company’s focal points is research and development. VERROTEC has already been an active research partner in several publicly funded cooperation projects and is also currently a member of three research networks, including the ZIM innovation network “AMglass+”. In addition to its work in research projects and networks, the engineering company is active in numerous committees and supports scientific institutes in aligning research content with practical needs. In order to be able to cover diverse competences, VERROTEC attaches particular importance to an interdisciplinary project consortium. Also internally the project team is set up in such a way that all necessary competences and the corresponding personnel capacity are available. The reflection at the end of a project is an essential part and goes beyond the financial aspect. For example, it also highlights what has been learned from the respective projects, in which aspects one has developed further in the field of numerics and component testing, and which valuable contacts one has been able to establish.
