The Contract Research Projects, in charge of the ICIQ’s Business Development Unit, makes use of the expertise of a research group or technology development unit to successfully undertake a research project proposed by industry.
The average project involves one or more post-doctoral researcher working full-time under the supervision of an ICIQ Group Leader, with possible access to ICIQ’s facilities. The research objectives are set by the industrial partner, and 100% of the resulting intellectual property is assigned to the company (unless otherwise agreed). This collaboration is set by signing an specific contract stating the basic conditions such as cost, researchers involved and any particular characteristics regarding the research project.
The unit has developed more than 600 services and projects since it was born, in 2004, from more than 90 international customers.
