That we are innovative here at LangTec, we’ve known for a while. Being certified as innovative through research, however, is good news even to us. Last week we received the Stifterverband’s research seal. Stifterverband is a joint initiative of companies and foundations dedicated entirely to consulting, networking and promoting improvements in the fields of education, science and innovation. Since 2014 the Stifterverband’s research seal ‘Innovative through research’ is awarded annually to enterprises actively conducting research. The award recognises the special responsibility these companies take within state and society. We are delighted to be one of those companies.
