The UPC generates knowledge and transfers it to the production sector to increase businesses' capacity for innovation and competitiveness. In addition to this kind of collaboration, which is often international in scope, the UPC also specifically attends to the needs of small and medium-sized enterprises that want to innovate, by becoming their main technological partner. The University's corporate relations consist of high-value innovation services, such as research projects, the generation and exploitation of patents, the use of facilities and tailor-made training.
