The main value of a research centre lies in the role it plays as promoter of technological development on the environment, collaborating with other entities and institutions with the purpose of transferring knowledge and R&D results to enterprises and industrial productive network, in order to improve their competitiveness and dissemination from a national and international point of view. Research and development would be useless if that hard laboratory working did not result in innovative and state-of-the-art applications that enable a new improvement or provide for a new added value to the industrial activity of a sector, in this case, the aerospace industry, since the enterprises are those which, thanks to these innovations, on their turn generate employment and wealth around them, and in other words, they may help to the economical growth.

That is why, at CATEC, we are especially proud of the new landmark that has been reached: the inclusion in the Record of Research Results Transfer Offices (OTRI), of the Ministry for Economy. That is a homologation that certificates the condition of our Centre as organization that gathers together top level research and scientific projects from a national and international point of view and also dedicated to the development and transfer of new technologies for its implementation in companies of the aerospace industry.

Such distinction also consolidates the work developed by CATEC as one of the most dynamic research centers and, even more important, it increases its possibilities to collaborate with other members of the OTRI network to exchange information and knowledge that may result in the execution of projects and initiatives for common use. We believe that, as a result of this cooperation work, there will appear new advances and progresses that will have a positive consequence on the technological development of the industry.

Doubtlessly, the qualification as OTRI means a step forward in the route of CATEC, which is, step by step, moving forward to occupy a place in the top technological centers ranking regarding the European aerospace environment, thanks to the participation and development of pioneering projects like some of those explained on this issue. A task that also involves the promotion in the main events and forums of the aeronautic industry and other dissemination activities among institutions and entities that already value as positive our work and effort supporting R&D. This is an effort and a commitment that we will keep carrying on.
