Research Applications organises Simula's activities within innovation and industry collaboration. Our main tasks are to identify business opportunities within the core of Simula’s research areas, and to support efforts for increased industry collaboration.
The Research Applications unit is set up as a framework to support Simula's two subsidiaries, Simula Innovation AS and Kalkulo AS. With activities in the same business area, it is natural for these subsidiaries to comprise a single unit, promoting and facilitating the application of Simula’s research results and providing a return on national investment.
Simula has proven that a strong focus on basic research can be successfully combined with long-term industrial collaboration. In such a collaboration Simula’s role is to solve challenging problems that significantly benefit the industrial partner. Research Applications work for and support the research departments in their efforts for increased industry collaboration.
