Research partners

Academic partners

IMDEA Networks Institute is meeting place for scientists, researchers, institutions, government bodies and businesses who share our interest in conducting and promoting leading edge research in the field of network technologies. We aim to provide a place where people and institutions are constantly meeting, collaborating and then forming new working arrangements to undertake specific, research-related activities. We are building the hub of an extended global network through collaboration.

Academic collaboration criteria

Collaborative arrangements are of both an informal, ad hoc character and, in some cases, of a more formalized nature, in the form of collaboration agreements with research institutions (including research groups within some Universities). The scope of such arrangements can include:

  • Double appointment of senior researchers
  • Participation in the governing organs of the Institute including the Board of Trustees and the Scientific Council
  • Postgraduate programs for early-stage researchers
  • Training and development of researchers
  • Exchanges of personnel
  • Joint research project collaboration
  • Joint publications
  • Access to shared resources such as facilities and equipment

IMDEA Networks Institute currently has Collaborative Agreements with several eminent institutions. These include:

IMDEA Networks Institute also collaborates with other scientific institutions around the World, offering their leading scientists the opportunity to work with us on extended sabbaticals. Visiting researchers come from institutions such as:

Industry Partners

The Institute faces challenges which are essential to its short and long term success, as they define our strategy of competitive placement within the international scientific community as well as the achievement of our socio-economic objectives. We direct our work towards strengthening collaboration ties with industry, particularly through joint participation in projects and technology transfer.

We aim to develop technologies that have genuine socio-economic impact; projects that deliver value and that can be transferred to industry and, ultimately, to society. In order to ensure that our focus remains on addressing real-world problems and that our development activities result in generating value, we continue to build on our strong links with the business community both in the Madrid region, Spain and in the rest of the world.

Our technology transfer strategy is aimed to ensure that the Institute’s research activities remain relevant, that its innovations are diffused and their full value to society realised through various transfer processes such as licensing and other forms of IPR (Intellectual Property Rights), the sale of patents, and support to spin-off companies in the region that seek to commercialize products exploiting innovations developed within the Institute.

Joint research projects enable us to establish solid ties to business: we are engaged in various funded research projects and collaborative agreements with private sector collaborators. as well as participation in joint projects financed by public entities.
