Contract Research

The process of invention is complex, heuristic in nature and prone to significant project delays; and as a result, is expensive, exposed to cost overruns and many projects are left incomplete.   Experience plays a huge role in designing research programs that are cohesive and that yield measurable results in terms of cost per patents, licensing revenue and litigation costs containment.

Our company utilizes various proprietary risk minimization methods, all based on our experience as program managers of multi-million dollar research projects.  We also maintain a global network of partnering research facilities that contribute laboratory and computational resources on cost recovery basis, thus minimizing the need for large up front capital investments.  This network of facilities is supplemented and made more accessible through the personal relationships of the experts of our Global Research and Management Consulting Network
