Logo Tecnalia 


TECNALIA is a private, applied research centre of international excellence with a great impact on local industry. TECNALIA was born from the merger of 8 technological centres: Cidemco, TECNALIA; Euve, FATRONIK, Inasmet, Labein, Leia and Robotiker, resulting the largest private R+D+i entity in Spain and the fifth in Europe, with a staff of over 1,400 employees and a turnover of almost 125 million Euros.

The keys turning the vision of TECNALIA into reality are marked by: its private nature; the ocusing of its activity on Applied Research; the fact that it is a centre of international excellence; the impact it has on local industry (R+D and Innovation projects with companies, spin offs, training, E+C services); its openness; and the fact that it has become a centre that attracts people who want to develop their creativity, and organisations (networks) keen to interact and co-generate knowledge with TECNALIA.

TECNALIA’s operating business model is based on business units of a sectorial nature. Market orientation and specialization are our identifying traits. TECNALIA has 13 Business Units, made up of multi-disciplinary teams.
