Research projects

Scientific and technological research is one of the activities of IQS as a university centre. It is part of our mission to contribute to science and technology for the economic and social progress. Thus, we make our knowledge, experience, infrastructures and capacities available to society in order to develop RDI projects that allow us to generate new technologies, products and processes for industrial application to improve the level of sustainability, welfare and social prosperity.

Most of our research projects are funded by various public entities or private foundations. Some are carried out individually, although collaborative projects with other entities such as companies, hospitals, research centres and other universities, both in our immediate geographical environment and internationally, are more common.
