The goal of ISOM is to perform research in the fields of detection, processing, transmission and recording of information by means of Opto- and Micro-electronics, and to transfer the results to the industry. The training of innovating professionals will be accomplished through their participation in such research and development tasks.

ISOM seeks to be a technology research laboratory that can participate under the most favorable conditions in projects from the European Union. This participation ought to be as an center of excellence, with the capabilities to perform tasks under equal conditions to those from similar centers in Europe.

Three distinct features are characteristic of ISOM: the aspiration to hold technology potential with pre-industrial control and reproducibility, and transfer this technology to industries; the vocation to develop scientific and technological collaborations with industry and academic institutions; and the desire to offer external services on characterization, quality control and reliability, in the frame of optoelectronics and technology for communication and information.

ISOM also offers cooperation formulas to industries for usage of laboratory and cleanroom facilities during arranged periods of time. There are also dedicated rooms available to industries for R+D activities assuring protection of the industrial and intellectual property. Moreover, ISOM wants 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.

ISOM wants to highlight its desire to develop cooperation formulas with universities and research centres in the field of training doctors, joint doctorate programmes, and in the development of technology and research. Along this path, ISOM has already endorsed several cooperation agreements listed further down.

Finally, ISOM wants to offer its services on technology and characterization to the scientific and technical community. Thus, it hopes to hold facilities promoted by UPM and other institutions, which could be useful to such 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.)
