We Strive to Constantly Advance Innovation

At INFICON, innovation is an fundamental part of our company culture. We strive to explore new technologies and use our expertise in different fields to push the limits of what's possible.

Pushing the boundaries of technology

We approach innovation through research, a lot of research, often diving into unsolved challenges where others might hesitate. Whether it's a complex scientific investigation or a field project in seemingly impossible conditions, we at INFICON thrive on these challenges.

We believe that by consistently pushing the boundaries of technology and investing in resources and know-how, we foster innovation and continue to be at the forefront of technological advancements.

Constant learning is part of our innovation

Another part of our innovation journey is the numerous fast paced 1-month research initiatives we conduct throughout the year that we call "Hackathons." These events serve as a starting point for creative ideas and rapid problem-solving. By addressing immediate needs and swiftly generating cross-department ideas, we create a global environment that fosters innovation. 

The outcomes of these Hackathons provide valuable insights that serve as the building blocks for developing new solutions for different applications and industry-leading solutions.

Constant learning and interdisciplinary global teams are another integral part of our innovation process. Continuous learning loops, feedback, successes and failures enable us to stay ahead in delivering innovative solutions to our customers.

Research projects with renowned partners

While we cannot communicate all the projects we’re working on, there are a couple of exciting projects we would like to share with you. In all of them, we have the chance to collaborate together with bright minds from leading organizations, renowned universities and international associations.
