‘Our investment in R & D will result in innovative solutions for our customers’

Examine any country, any organisation, any enterprise that is growing and leading-the-way and you will always find a healthy and thriving culture that recognizes the value of research & development (R&D). It is the cornerstone of any growing society. The encouragement of creative thinking, so critical to research & development success, challenges historical and accepted thought processes. It is the pursuit of something that holds the promise of discovery, solutions to problems and future benefits for many.

“Research and development in business refers to the investigative activities a business conducts to improve existing products and procedures or that lead to the development of new products and procedures.” – Investopedia

It is the coming together of the “thinkers” with the “doers”; academia with entrepreneurship; the transformation of ideas into something of tangible value and benefit.

UrbanVirons Group (UVG) has a long history of R&D, innovation, collaboration, and then implementation. It is the ingredient that sustains our leadership position in the industry, continues to benefit our customers, grows our staff, creates opportunities, prospers our community, and cares for our environment.

We believe that R&D collaborative partnerships hold the key to Australia’s future prosperity and a better future for our children. Accordingly, we invest funds annually in R&D collaborations to pursue those aims, with leading organisations like:

  • Department of Industry, Innovation & Science
  • University of Adelaide
  • University of South Australia
  • Torrens University
  • University of Melbourne
