Ropardo Innovation Lab




Rapidly achieve technological innovations

ROPARDO Rapid Innovation Lab (RIL) provides support from innovation via prototyping and evaluation to further implementation into a concrete product.


Unique laboratory set up for each experiment

Experimental development enables the acquiring, combining, shaping and using of existing scientific, technological, business and other relevant knowledge and skills in order to produce plans and arrangements or designs for new, transformed or improved products, processes or services.

  • Holistic approach of your innovation process: generation, evaluation, and implementation of new product ideas
  • Rapidly develop and implement ideas
  • Scientific competence as well as proven methods and technologies in Software Engineering
  • Comprehensive toolbox of methods and tools for all research phases, from ideation and evaluation to support
  • We offer you a lab infrastructure with various development environments for software engineering
  • Intellectual property protection
  • Secluded cloud space – always required

Comprehensive innovation toolbox

With our Ropardo Innovation Lab, you will benefit from a comprehensive toolbox of proven methods, tools, and competences, as well as a lab infrastructure ensuring a variety of development environments for Rapid Prototyping.

Comprehensive  Innovation Toolbox



In our ROPARDO Innovation Lab, we outline four phases to go through together on the journey towards a new solution or a new product: Innovation, Prototyping, Evaluation, and Support.

Exploiting our toolbox we support your company from idea generation in the creativity workshops via prototype implementation to the evaluation of customer acceptance and technical feasibility. To ensure you a successful product development, we use scientific competence as well as proven methods and technologies from the area of Software Engineering. And since not all companies have an innovative technology lab at their disposal, we offer a professional lab infrastructure where we rapidly evaluate your prototypes in an adequate environment.


Organizations regularly do not figure it out how to utilize effective creativity methods to produce new product ideas. The creative capabilities of the employees often stay unreaped. Some use brainstorming but this is listed amongst the most ineffective approaches. Yet,creativity should not be a matter of hazard, but guided with systematic techniques.

In Ropardo Innovation Lab, we let your ideas flow out while we support you with proven techniques like Design Thinking. We do this in organized creativity workshops and by prototyping in a rather standardized manner.
With this combination of creativity workshops and different prototyping techniques, customized on your requirements, we can also go as further as to develop the best innovation process for you. When it goes down to designing detailed product features or solving design issues, innovation workshops ensure considerable support in later phases of the product lifecycle.


To make sure that your rapidly developed prototypes meet the appropriate quality standards before land on the market, we can check multiple aspects in our Rapid Innovation Lab:

  • What are your architecture-related challenges – now and in the future?
  • What about key features like Security/Safety/Privacy?
  • How well is your product accepted on the market and by your customers?
  • Which User Experience does it offer?


The lab infrastructure combines technological equipment with domain – and system – specific expertise. Common state-of-the-art technologies and tools, as well as development and integration environments are integrated there, as are our own developments.

We make available various development lab environments for software prototyping, cloud infrastructure, such as: AI and ML, Digital tools, IoT & Cloud Computing, Data Analytics, API Platforms, Mobile Applications. The journey from prototype to product is normally fluid. Here we provide support in terms of scientific competence in Software Engineering.
