“Thank you for the clear report and the DVDs with data sets. This gives a good basis to start working on our spectrum management database and to learn how to verify and release wireless devices in our medical environments. I liked working with you and the team very much and I am very pleased with the results and the way the project was able to stay on track with planning.”

“We immediately spoke to the right person at Philips Innovation Services in the Netherlands. They were kind enough to show us around. We found that they had dedicated an entire building to the testing facility we needed from them. They optimised the design and performed simulations. In our field, groundbreaking innovations mostly come from small companies. It is nice to notice facilities are taking that into account.”

Sebastian Schostek
Business Unit Director

“Philips Innovation Services offers the full range of test and analysis facilities that Solland needs for its R&D work on solar cells and solar modules. Solland can benefit from many years of experience in the respective characterization techniques without the need for own investment in expensive characterization equipment. We are very satisfied with the responsiveness and the quality of the delivered results.”
