|Type of Organisation: ||R&D company|
The INEGI - INSTITUTE OF SCIENCE AND INNOVATION IN MECHANICAL AND INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING from the University of Porto is an industry-oriented Research and Technology Organization. Its organizational structure relies on three pillars of activity in different technology readiness levels, maintaining a strong competence matrix element:
• Research with applied focus
• Innovation and technology transfer
• Consulting and advanced engineering servicesINEGI’s research activity covers the areas of new technologies for advanced production processes, experimental mechanics, applied mechanics, energy, new materials and the development of new products and systems. This activity is integrated in the national network of research funded by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology, and has consistently been evaluated has excellent. Moreover, INEGI is considered one of the most effective national Research and Technology Organizations in transforming R&D investment in economic and social value. More than 50% of its total turnover of 6.5 million euros comes from R&D and innovation projects funded by the industry. INEGI’s research infrastructure includes a broad set of well-equipped laboratories and an extensive engineering tools base for supporting its R&D activity as well as the production of industrial or commercial prototypes.
