Archive of Spin-off Created Companies

Researchers at IMB-CNM have carried out a long-standing collaboration with industry agents to transfer the technologies developed at the laboratory to the society. The IMB-CNM is one of the most active CSIC centers in spin-off creation for the valorization of ideas and products partially or fully developed within the research groups of the institute. This is the archive off all the recent created companies, some have been closed either because their goal has been fulfilled or because of a change in its activity.

Researchers at IMB-CNM have carried out the process of starting a spin-off in a wide range of fields involving the activity of the institute. Nowadays, there are technology-based companies (EBTs in Spanish) with more than ten years of expertise in the field. Some of the spin-offs are currently developing technologies to be applied in biomedicine, nanotechnology, power devices and systems or the Internet of Things. The CSIC researchers mentioned were at IMB-CNM at the moment of its creation.
