What we do

We promote research, development and innovation with a focus on value creation. By working with small and medium-sized enterprises, we accelerate the development of technologies and transfer technological assets into innovative products, processes and services. In particular, we shape cutting-edge technologies into innovative solutions to solve real challenges in the fields of Health 4.0, Continuity of Care and Industry 4.0.

We highlight our knowledge and expertise in the domains of:

  • Embedded Systems
  • Collaborative Robotics
  • Internet of Bodies (IoB)
  • Impact Assessment and Certification
Increasingly focusing on cutting-edge technologies as a differentiating factor in the provision of specialized services.

Our activities benefit from the close collaboration with researchers from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (DEEC), from the University of Coimbra and from the Institute of Systems and Robotics (ISR).
