CATEC has attended the VI National Technology Centres Meeting, held in Málaga last 25th October organized by the Spanish Federation representing Technology Centres (FEDIT), which brought together the main research and technological development centres and entities of Spain.

This year, the seminar had the participation of Tom Hockaday, Isis Innovation CEO, main institution for the R&D Management of University of Oxford, who gave the speech “R&D valorisation: how to prize an idea?” in which he showed some keys to learn to valorise R&D within the companies.

Scientists and researchers attended this meeting, which is an annual forum where ideas and knowledge between R&D&I experts from all over Spain could be exchanged and they could share interests and reach agreement of collaboration for developing together technology projects.

On the 26th October, and coinciding with the international EMTech Spain, the Technology Conference of the MIT Technology Review, the scientific publication of the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the first Technology Conference FEDIT, was held. This is a meeting point where research and technology centres have the opportunity of presenting their last developments and projects to visitors and companies.

CATEC had a stand where its technology capacities and main research lines were exhibited among the 40 research centres and 200 companies which attended the conference.

The I FEDIT Innovation Award, framed in the International Year of Chemistry, went to the project “Catalytic design system to eliminate pollutants in diesel-engine vehicles”. By its side, MIT also recognized for the first time the 10 smartest Spanish young researchers under 35.
