Research & innovation

DTF makes R&D part of its sustainability approach

Driven by a constant desire to improve our product ranges, we make research and development part of our sustainability approach, integrating eco-design into our innovation and new product development processes.

Two R&D centers are responsible for exploiting and developing a portfolio of patents in our areas of expertise.

R&D in Saint-Etienne:

  • Multidisciplinary team (project management and technical subcontracting, CAD, electronics and IOT, plastics, mechanics): 3 people focused on incremental innovations and product ranges.

R&D in Tours:

  • A collaborative industrial & academic structure dedicated to aerosol therapy, created in 2003, Aerodrug is supported by a Study & Research Engineer and the infrastructures of Inserm Unit U1100 and the Faculty of Medicine (University of Tours). This makes Aerodrug one of Europe's leading research units in this field.
