Current projects in the pipeline

We develop all our R&D projects with care and attention to ensure results in line with company standards. Every year we invest more than 10% of our global turnover in R&D and Basic Science Research. The management of our R&D projects respects a step-by-step process that in most cases includes:

  • Phase 1 – definition of development requirements and overall project planning
  • Phase 2 – selection of the most qualified partners to carry out basic research, design and/or production, as well as fundraising activities
  • Phase 3 – prototype engineering supported by document development
  • Phase 4 – verification and validation of prototype by means of technical-functional tests and, where applicable, targeted clinical trials
  • Phase 5 – fine-tuning of the device in a production perspective
  • Phase 6 - Submission of the technical dossier to obtain the CE marking
  • Phases 7 and 8 – market placement, at first in a monitored area (7) and then in a global environment (8)
