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.
