Our mission

With the aim of constantly improving our competitiveness, Aciturri develops an intense R&D activity for the definition of new products, processes and manufacturing technologies. For that purpose, we participate both in partnership and technological alignment programs with clients, suppliers, universities, technological centres and research institutions.

Innovation

  • Research

    Since 2002 we participate in European reference R&D projects as part of V, VI and VII European Framework Program. Those are programs as AWIATOR, SILENCER, RC2, LAYSA or HP-SMART EMA, the last one as part of Clean Sky.
