NLMK Group has launched NLMK.lab, a new internet platform, designed to attract partners for joint innovation projects.
This platform offers a convenient channel for developers to reach out to end business customers, and hands-on peer-review of their project. The best solutions will be field-tested at NLMK Group’s production sites around the world.
NLMK offers its innovation partners a simple collaboration algorithm. Shortly after receiving the application form via the NLMK.lab website, NLMK experts will be in touch with the inventors to jointly evaluate the solution’s industrial applicability and potential. A pilot project will then be launched to test the effectiveness of the project and determine further scale-out and collaboration potential.
NLMK welcomes ideas aimed at improving the efficiency of existing production, repair and maintenance, logistics, energy, environmental, and other processes.
More than 250 startups have already been peer-reviewed by the company, and more than 30 are being piloted. (NLMK/Ukrainian metal)
