Technology Transfer

Micro and nano electronics, photonics and smart systems have been identified as a fundamental part of the Key Enabling Technologies, which are the basis for the development and the improvement of the innovation capability of the European industry. These technologies have a high economic potential and the capability to contribute to solve the current societal challenges. The mission of IMB-CNM is, in addition to improve the knowledge in the micro and nano electronics fields, to contribute to the implementation of solutions based in these technologies in industrial products. It has therefore a strong focus on technology transfer activities, which mainly include the creation of spin-off companies and the development of patents.

Researchers of IMB-CNM have collaborated in the recent years to create Spin-Offs for the valorisation of ideas and products partially or fully developed within the research groups of the institute. 

IMB-CNM, within CSIC, advertises its technological offers in order to contact companies interested in its commercial exploitation. For this, IMB-CNM-CSIC shows its technologies in the main international technology fairs and participates in the “Enterprise Europe Network”.

D+T Microelectrónica A.I.E. is an Association of Economic Interest in charge of the commercial exploitation of IMB-CNM’s Clean Room. Its mission is providing the microelectronics industry with turnkey solutions.
