The IIT, Institute for Research in Technology, belongs to the School of Engineering (ICAI) of Comillas Pontifical University of Madrid (Comillas).
Its main aim is to promote research and postgraduate training in diverse technological fields through participation in specific projects of interest for Industry and the Government.
It is a non-profit Institute, which aims to be flexible and pragmatic in the way it works. It is essentially financed by projects contracted by companies, and thus responds to a clear social demand.
The results of the research projects can be grouped according to the following categories:
Research in the IIT is conducted by the academic staff (Professors and Researchers) as well as by a group of postgraduates following a Research Training Program. Postgraduate students are generally funded by IIT scholarships and work as Research Assistants exclusively at the Institute. Work teams are formed from both groups to develop research projects, sometimes resulting in doctoral theses.
