And... in terms of technology?

CIGIP has more than a decade of experience in R&D&I and has participated in multiple competitive research projects called by the Polytechnic University of Valencia, the Generalitat Valenciana, national organizations such as the Interministerial Commission for Science and Technology, the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports, the Center for Industrial Technical Development, etc., and the European Union (IV, V and VI Framework Program), as well as various agreements with private companies. 

how do we collaborate?

CIGIP maintains as one of its most important strengths the continuous collaboration with Companies and Organizations in the different R&D&I activities. To further strengthen this relationship we propose the following tools.

Advisory meetings

We offer the possibility of holding work sessions at the request of the interested party with the objective of contributing our experience to facilitate the approach to specific problems. Insofar as they imply a knowledge of the business reality and punctuality, it does not imply any cost.


Contracts for the performance of a specific technology transfer service to one or more companies or organizations. These are low-risk innovative activities with short-term objectives for the application of consolidated knowledge generated in research projects.

R&D projects

Activities for the generation of new knowledge, usually co-financed by public entities, with medium to long-term objectives and high risk. Experience shows the need to have a relationship prior to the project for a better understanding of the problems and cultures of the participants.


One of the most consolidated forms of dissemination in a university center. CIGIP offers an annual program of postgraduate training and specific training in companies. In turn, a doctoral program is offered based on the lines of research and with contents based on the R&D&I work recently carried out.

This type of experience allows participants to incorporate innovative technology that makes a competitive difference, and to establish highly beneficial relationships with companies and organizations.

R&D contracts

CIGIP is characterized by its clear orientation towards the company, since the new knowledge generated is transferred to the business fabric through Research, Development and Innovation Agreements or Advanced Training. We offer advanced advice to companies using software tools developed by CIGIP.

The Advisory Meetings are the formula used by CIGIP to initiate collaborations with companies. Through this procedure, a quick analysis of the company is carried out and the possibilities of collaboration are raised, whether for the resolution of specific problems, advanced training or participation in research projects with competitive public funding.
