The long tradition of Metrica SA in occupying with state-of-art sensors and high expertise services finds its core on the Research and Innovation Center (RIC).  We believe that progress must be visible, so RIC's vision is to redefine and break down the boundaries of surveying measurements with our innovations. Our actions aim to establish new knowledge and to explore the feasibility of new or improved technologies, services, and solutions in the measurement world.
Metrica's Research and Innovation Center follows a simple philosophy: to devote our knowledge and technology to creating superior services that contribute to safer results. For this reason, from research to services, we continuously strive to improve on all levels to ensure that our users can always rely on our team.

In RIC, we mixed our knowledge and technical skills with our creativity and passion. We always strive to deeply understand our users and turn their needs and ideas into innovative solutions. For this purpose, our methodology includes
•    basic and applied research,
•    technology development and integration,
