The goal of CT-ISOM is to offer its infrastructure and research-technological experience to the European industrial and academic community. The application fields of CT-ISOM are detection, processing, transmission and recording of information by means of Opto- and Micro-electronics. The training of innovating professionals will be accomplished through their participation in such research and development tasks. Three distinct features are characteristic of CT-ISOM:

  • Availability of the required technology to be able to provide pre-industrial control and reproducibility, as well as technology transfer to industries
  • Vocation to develop scientific and technological collaborations between industry and academic institutions
  • Wish to offer external services on characterization, quality control and reliability, in the framework of Optoelectronics and Technology for Communications and Information.

CT-ISOM also offers collaboration schemes to suit industries' needs for usage of laboratory and cleanroom facilities during arranged periods of time. For that purpose, CT-ISOM provides special rooms available to industries for R&D activities, assuring industrial and intellectual property protection. Moreover, CT-ISOM intends to participate in the generation of spin-off's by means of temporary agreements on usage of space and technological equipment as well as human resources.

CT-ISOM wants to highlight its desire to develop collaboration schemes with universities and research centres. In this case, the collaboration consists of training doctors, joint doctorate programmes, and the development of technology and research.

Finally, CT-ISOM wants to offer its services on technology and characterization to the scientific and technical community. Thus, it hopes to count on facilities promoted by UPM and other institutions, which could be useful to this community in the field of electronics, optoelectronics and communications (several high resolution microscopy techniques, materials analysis, characterization of components, modules and systems, packaging, noise, etc).
