WE INVEST

At Eurocoating we invest huge resources in scientific research activities. Decades of continuous collaboration with Universities and Research Institutes worldwide have led to invaluable scientific investigations. Collaborations push our R&D team to keep an open-minded approach to daily problems and to stay constantly up to date about new technology and methods.

Moreover, top-level collaboration gives rise to ever-new career opportunities and strongly contributes to fostering professional motivation.

For us R&D, in a fast evolving technological world, is a total commitment. Since the ’90s, we have been performing scientific, technical and biological research in collaboration with international partners.

With more than 150 papers, our archive is an invaluable common heritage, available to all our partners.
