Research projects

Generating new knowledge and ideas and providing technology transfer to help turn them new products and services is crucial to maintain and enhance the competitiveness of industry and the EU as a whole. For this complex process it is important that researchers and industry work closely together and maximize the social and economic benefits of new ideas.

National and international research projects help improve the knowledge transfer between research institutions and industry. With those objectives in mind, IMDEA Networks participates in multiple research projects. Below is a list of the ones active at the moment.

Research Projects

IMDEA Networks Institute receives funding to develop its research activities from varied sources. There are two main categories of external funding:

Funding of individual researchers

Individual researchers receive funding in the form of grants, scholarships and fellowships from international, national or regional funds. At present several of our researchers are proud awardees of ERC Grants, MARIE CURIE Intra-European Fellowships (IEF) for Career Development, MARIE CURIE Amarout Europe Programme Fellowships, “Ramón y Cajal” grants, FPU scholarships and I3 subventions.

Externally-funded research projects, attracting European Union, National or Regional funds

Externally-funded research projects enable us to collaborate with researchers from other organizations and backgrounds. Research funding is awarded following an open competitive selection process in which project proposals, and the private or public sector organizations presenting them, are subject to rigorous scrutiny. Such thoroughness helps to ensure that research undertaken with those funds is relevant, well-managed and with high probabilities of success in achieving its stated goals.

European Union (EU)-funded Research Projects provide the Institute with excellent opportunities to collaborate with leading players in the international arena. Such projects are awarded through an open tendering system in which project consortia, composed of players from public and private sectors, collaborate to prepare and submit competitive research proposals in response to a specific EU call. The awarding of the research grant is a decision based on the funding organisation’s assessment of the proposals’ relative probabilities of success in achieving the stated goals.

IMDEA Networks seeks partnerships with leading companies, research institutes, Universities and technology centres that wish to form consortia for collaboration on such projects.

National and Regional Research are similar to European-funded research projects in their openness and the tendering processes used.

Commissioned research projects

These are the projects in which the Institute is contracted by a company or organisation to conduct exclusive research on its behalf can be considered.
