  3. 3. Who We are The Public Research Centre Henri Tudor is an independent applied research centre located in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Since it was established in 1987, CRP Henri Tudor has been focusing on business innovation, with the goal of making a significant contribution to increasing the competitiveness of Luxembourg industry and of its partners throughout the world. In order to achieve this goal, we collaborate actively with the manufacturing sector, most notably in the fields of advanced materials and environmental technologies, but also in the area of organisation and management science. This multidisciplinary approach is one of our primary assets: our teams are comprised of chemists, physicists, environmental engineers and experts in industrial systems and technology watch. Through our MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY innovation programme, we mobilise our skills in a cross-disciplinary manner in order to propose global solutions that meet the requirements of the manufacturing industry. our offer in • The formulation and innovative, as well as n • The analysis and c mechanical, thermo-m and molecular), elect multi-technology and development of orig • Mechanical and acce validation of materials standards (ISO, ASTM aeronautical sectors, et • The modelling and si our aim The MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY innovation programme aims to respond to the market challenges facing the manufacturing industry, which can be grouped around three main areas: • Industry-specific factors, such as cost reduction, improving the cost-benefit ratio, reducing delays for product delivery and marketing, as well as identifying new client needs and market niches; • Life-Cycle Analysis a consideration when de • Services for the opti introduction and assess • Support for the defin development strateg • Mega trends such as urbanisation, the common market and the increasing demand for natural resources; • Production managem and 'Lean Managemen process modelling/simu • The continuous evolution of normative and legislative landscapes, especially regarding environmental aspects and the marketing of chemical products. • Economic intelligen research services (pat What We propose In order to respond to these industrial needs, we have developed an innovation programme that addresses the following topics in a cross-disciplinary manner: • New functional and intelligent materials • Analysis, testing and validation of materials • Eco-design, Life-Cycle Analysis of products and processes • Support services for the assets; • Macro-economic ana economic environment You can also benefit Luxembourg, a nation identify your obligati with the European authorisation and re labelling and packagin • Energy optimisation and renewable energies • Optimisation of procedures and processes; economic intelligence • Integration of normative and legislative constraints The activities of this programme encompass contractual and collaborative research projects, innovation services and products as well as scientific support for national policies and their implementation by manufacturers.

You can also benefit from the support of the REACH&CLP Helpdesk Luxembourg, a national technical assistance service that helps you to identify your obligations and prepare you for ensuring compliance with the European regulations REACH (registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemicals) and CLP (classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures). Our materials laboratory is ISO/IEC 17025 certified to conduct its testing activities. The detailed catalogue of our products and services is available at www.tudor.lu/manufacturing-industry
