Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


This study, carried out within the Sprint programme, presents a clear picture of this research sector which actually transfers research to industry directly, under contract, that is to say under market conditions, and which therefore plays a decisive role in the rapid dissemination of innovation and new technologies into the industrial sector as a whole. In the directory, over 130 European contract research organisations are shown. The criteria for selection were the number of research contracts handled (more than 30% of their budget), their independence and their size (more than 5 researchers). The organisations are classified in the various Member States by the technical field they cover and by industrial sector served.
