The “Association of Technology Developers with TECNIO accreditation”, or “Associació TECNIO”, is a non-profit association formed by, to the extent that they so decide voluntarily, Catalan universities, the research groups from Consejo Superior de Investigaciones de Científicas (CSIC) and the Fundació Institució de Centres d’Investigació de Catalunya (Fundació I-CERCA), as long as they have research groups or centers that hold TECNIO accreditation. The mission of the Association is to promote and connect research groups and centers with TECNIO accreditation and the entities that host them with the industry and the administration, to strengthen and make technology transfer visible towards society.
This project is co-financed by the European Union through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
