Today, many market-leading companies outsource parts of their research and development activities. The reasons for this vary; increased focus on core activities, resource issues (time, competence, facilities) or improved control over the commercial risks related to R&D projects.
Among smaller companies, it’s relatively common to have only a few R&D projects running at the same time, and sometimes only one project every other year. In these cases, it is difficult to maintain quality, cost control and have a high productivity. In these situations, it makes a lot of sense to partner up with someone like Prevas, who is constantly running complex projects at all times.
