We value collaborations
We believe that maintaining an attitude of openness and exchanging knowledge with our peers can stimulate better science and bring us closer to cutting-edge solutions for our customers’ needs.
Extensive collaborations with academic institutions are essential for our continuous improvement and progress. Exchanging visionary ideas with fellow scientists enables the flow of critical information, new approaches and resources and stimulates new thinking for our projects.
At VIO Chemicals, we have established long-term collaborations with some of the world’s leading institutions, such as the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH Zurich), renowned for its science, technology and innovation and a bedrock of true Swiss values, the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH), the largest University in Greece, the National Technical University of Athens, the most prestigious engineering schools in Greece, the University of Zagreb, the oldest and biggest university in Croatia and the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH), one of the leading research centres in the country, listed among the top 20 in Europe.
Collaborations with industry
At VIO Chemicals, we wish to deliver the highest quality standards for our customers. This is why we have a culture of open-mindedness and pursue lifelong collaborations and joint ventures with top-notch industry partners at all stages of product development. From the supply of raw material and chemical synthesis to quality, compliance, regulatory control and final production, our partners provide us with access to a broad range of products, markets, knowledge and technologies.
In 2014, VIO Chemicals teamed up with SpiroChem AG, a Swiss fine chemicals company active in the field of high-value-added building blocks. The aim of the collaboration was to develop safer and cost-effective proprietary routes to several classes of molecules and flow chemistry techniques for the production of intermediates. Currently, VIO Chemicals is working together with SpiroChem AG in the design and synthesis of Bicyclo[1.1.1]pentanes, novel chemical tools used in drug discovery programmes.
Explicat Pharma GmbH, a German-based company in development and consulting, has been our life-long partner mainly in pre-clinical and clinical development and advanced drug delivery systems.
