The common objective of the actions carried out in this project is to increase the transfer to industry and society of the results of the research developed at the Institute of Microelectronics of Seville for the improvement of processes and products and for the development of specific applications. To this end, the creation of a Projects and Transfer Unit with specific tasks of prospecting, dissemination, support and promotion of transfer activities is planned.
The launch of this initiative reflects two motivations of different nature. On the one hand, it seeks to increase the return on investments and guarantee the transfer of results generated in the Institute, augment its visibility in the industrial sector, promote the use of its infrastructures by external research groups, and intensify participation in research and development programs focused on collaboration between public and private entities. On the other hand, the center aims to fulfill its function as Agent of the Andalusian Knowledge System specialized in the area of Microelectronics, making available to Andalusian companies the services and technologies necessary for the development of innovative products.
