Innovation at the IEEC

One of the main missions at IEEC is the transfer of the generated knowledge and space technologies to the industry and investors, in order to get a great impact and benefit for the institute, companies and society. The center has an important technological development from its scientific production of excellence, structured in for scientific-technological units able to raise challenges in the knowledge frontier, and led by a highly competitive team in space science and instrumentation with a high degree of internationalization.

This great complementarity between the scientific and technological fields is based in the fact that the space is not just a research object itself, but also a means to pave the way to new methodologies and technologies to generate knowledge. Research in the space science field has historically –and especially over the last few decades- caused a transformation of the world we live in.

The activity in the technological area is also developed from joint projects with companies in the aerospace and TIC business.
