Innovation to drive ICT research towards market and society needs
At i2CAT, we help local and regional governments to define and implement Smart City strategies based on our know-how to guarantee a high quality of life for citizens as well as a sustainable future for the planet.
The latest technological advances on IoT, Big Data or connected and autonomous cars are the basis for a smarter mobility, energy and public services that serve the citizens.
Internet is helping users play a more active role in their own health and social environment. At i2CAT, we work not only to provide technology to the professional side of the health and social care ﬁelds, but also to empower the citizen by intensifying technology use on their own behalf.
We help citizens by creating sustainable communication channels with professionals, and assist professionals by rethinking assistance towards proactivity through the capabilities that technology offers (Big Data & Analytics, Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning, Blockchain, Fog Computing & Internet of Things and Event Driven Architectures).
i2CAT aims at collaborating with companies in the development and deployment of digital technologies in order to collect, integrate and analyze data about operational processes.
The digitization of products is also essential. Adding smart sensors and data analytics tools to generate data on product use and refine products is key to meet the increasing needs of end-customers.
Our goal is to help companies in their expansion by providing disruptive digital solutions like data-driven services and integrated platform solutions.
The Digital Social Innovation (DSI) area is in charge of i2CAT’s deﬁnition of the Quadruple Helix model and strategy, promoting the DSI approach across the R&D areas of the organization, as well as designing, testing and evaluating new DSI labs in Catalonia.
The area is generating its own research projects around the vision of co-laboratories as universal innovation ecosystems, based in networks of open research and open innovation labs.
i2CAT offers innovative technologies and services, through research and applied development, to improve processes to create and digitize new products.
With our experience in supporting innovation, we can collaborate with companies to apply to some calls as a technological partner. We are currently participating in the financing line “CDTI-Cervera R&D transfer projects” and in the grants “Industry 4.0 Coupons” and “Innotec” from ACCIÓ.
