Priority areas

The project set out to construct the Centre for the Investigation of Advanced Systems based on Information and Communication Technologies (CISA-TIC) at Catalonia Polytechnic University (UPC).

The centre, opened in 2009, is dedicated to the development of integrated research projects which combine the findings of the many research groups in the field of ICT already operating at the UPC.

The project forms part of the K2M (Knowledge To Market) initiative, which is committed to the transfer of knowledge from universities to society. Another aim is that the CISA-TIC projects will lead to the development of advanced scientific-technological systems which can later be used industrially. 

Based on innovation’s lifecycle from initial idea to market, this initiative addressed the desire to develop a science policy which adapts research and the transfer of knowledge directly to the innovation needs of production environments. The construction of the CISA-TIC is just one of the EU-funded projects in Catalonia that are being managed by the State.

For the 2007-13 period, the EU has committed €86.88 million in grants for research projects and €126.49 million for construction projects and scientific equipment, to be managed by the Public Administration of the State.
