Contact us

Applus RTD is a world leader in the creation of new technology, working at the forefront of Research and Development (R&D) for industry since its inception in 1937.

Our Technological Center, in Rotterdam, is the focal point of our R&D work; it is where science and technological innovation meet.

We have invented and produced well-known technologies in use across the globe, and are committed to continuing innovation and development, like the IWEX 3D Imager.

Optimizing existing techniques and creating new, highly efficient and reliable technologies, which meet the many and varied challenges set by the industry, drives our team of specialist developers.

The R&D team is continuously involved in intensive projects to develop new solutions to emerging issues, while improving existing technologies to set new standards.

We work alongside our clients and other specialists on joint industrial projects, while collaborating with universities and other research institutions nationally and internationally. 

The R&D team's three departments – Physics, Hardware/Electronics and Software – conduct initial analysis of a problem before designing, developing and further implementing concept product and procedure designs.
