As a research-based company, MVTec receives funding from the German Federal Ministry for Research and Development and was awarded the BSFZ seal in 2023.

The research department at MVTec creates tomorrow's technologies today. The large research team, which encompasses almost one tenth of the MVTec staff, is dedicated to provide the customers with the latest technologies and research results. The interdisciplinary team tackles the most challenging questions and innovations, using proven research methods and cutting-edge technologies.

The developed technologies directly benefit our products and customers. Through extensive collaborations with the research community, as well as through own research, MVTec explores advanced and innovative methods for machine vision and computer vision. Additionally, MVTec members of staff regularly publish scientific papers and hold several teaching positions at German universities. Furthermore, MVTec sponsors conferences and awards and is actively involved in academic committees.

Promising new methods and algorithms are also explored through MVTec's long standing Ph.D. program, which has successfully supported several young researchers.
