CITCEA-UPC is a technology transfer centre of the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC BarcelonaTech), specialized in responding to the needs of enterprises to build functional prototypes that can be industrialized and commercialized. In order to carry this out, we build a client-supplier relationship with the enterprises we collaborate with.
Since 2001 CITCEA-UPC has been part of the TECNIO network. TECNIO is the label that gives the Catalan government through ACCIÓ to identify where are the most innovative technology providers that develop and and help to transfer this technology to the market.
CITCEA-UPC is expert in all types of applications requiring the control of energy and/or movement. It develops technologies in: electricity, control electronics, power electronics, industrial communications and digital control with processors. And the applications of these technologies range from the automation of processors and machines to renewable energies and the electrical grid, among many others.
