R+D+I: Creating groundbreaking innovations to Shape the Industry of the Future
Open Innovation for pushing the limits of technology for our clients.
OUR EXPERTISE & MAIN AREAS OF INTEREST
Our Innovation Lab manages the knowledge and knowhow generated over the course of many years working in R&D+I projects, channeling it into innovations to boost the products and solutions commercialised by IRIS, so that we can help our clients increase their competitiveness and efficiencies.
Together with our Open Innovation international network we perform high-tech R+D+I projects in the fields of Applied Photonics, ICT, and Circular-Bio Economy, collaborating with leading Technological Centres, Institutes and Universities to advance the state-of-the-art and push the boundaries of technology.
We help our network of industry and academic partners to shape winning grant applications. We lever our skills in technology evangelism, our deep market understanding, our business and innovative thinking to lead the way in authoring highly competitive bids.
Our Innovation Lines
We excel in the most relevant Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) for pioneering Industry 4.0 innovation
Photonics is the science and technology of generating, controlling, and detecting photons, which are particles of light. We specialise in NIR, SWIR, Fluorescence and Laser, among other photonics technologies for building innovative devices and solutions in the field of process analytical technologies applied to real-time monitoring in complex industrial processes.
AI & Digitisation
We perform research into computational and mathematical sciences, software and hardware technologies, communications, digital services, and digital engineering across technologies and industrial sectors. We are leading the way in advancements in computing for enabling smart manufacturing thanks to applying Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning techniques for data-driving industrial processes, and connecting upstream and downstream processes and entire value chain.
We are positioning ourselves as niche players in the research and development of monitoring technology for new biobased processes for overcoming the challenges related to the variability of natural biobased raw materials for helping industry to arrive at quality standardisation. We also apply novel processing technologies for the intensified production of renewable biological resources, and waste valorisation strategies for its conversion into value added products and new bio-based compounds in a circular approach.
WHAT OUR PARTNERS/CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US
IRIS is a clear example of how an SME can greatly contribute to SPIRE 8 founding sectors. IRIS’ commitment since the moment they joined the association has overcome the expectations. They have a technical and human well-balanced professional team, with a high and great engagement to face challenges and pursue excellence. No doubt their vision has allowed them to seize every opportunity of belonging to our community and find new market opportunities.
Àngels Orduña Cao
Executive Director A. SPIRE
Within the framework of a European research project, Optoprecision GmbH has been working closely with the experts from IRIS for several years. In an excellent working atmosphere between the colleagues of both companies, highly professional software solutions were efficiently developed, which were tailored to the application needs in close cooperation between several partners.
