Our R&D Services

We are committed to delivering the on-demand R&D service you need, when you need it. From generating ideas to developing applications, we deliver the expertise you need. Our consultants have problem-solving skills and can recommend innovative approaches that lead to new products.

  • STRIDE is structured to accommodate requests of any size or complexity, from short telephone consultations to long-term laboratory work (at your location or ours).
  • If your organization lacks sufficient time, expertise or objectivity in-house to solve stubborn and recurring problems, or find innovative solutions and develop new products, STRIDE’s teams of industry experts can prove to be the most effective and economical solution.
  • We have more than 80 co-located experts who can draw on each other’s knowledge and expertise with ease. This unique strength helps us connect the dots and offer solutions that would not be possible through a single consultant.
  • Compared to working with a single consultant who works independently, STRIDE expert teams have direct access to STRIDE resources, such as a laboratory to develop the solutions, as well as academic connections.
