Develop your R&D&I project with us


All innovation starts with research (knowledge creation) and the consequent development of applications. Most scientific and technological research is conducted at universities, where all academic staff are researchers. 

The University of Girona has 60 research groups of excellence recognised by the Government of Catalonia, that belong to 27 university departments and research institutes, of which 10 are TECNIO groups and for the linked research centres: Catalan Water Research Institute (ICRA-CERCA), Catalan Cultural Heritage Research Institute (ICRPC-CERCA), and the Girona Biomedical Research Institute (IdIBGi-CERCA). They all are at the disposal of the companies and institutions.


The UdG can conduct your research or technology development project without you having to invest in facilities and sophisticated equipment or hire research staff.

If you are an SME, the UdG can act as your company's R&D&I department and help you to define your project from the very beginning, orientating it to the innovation you need.

The UdG counts on extensive experience in taking part in R&D&I projects in collaboration with national and international companies and institutions. If you are thinking of conducting a collaborative R&D&I project, the UdG can help you to:

  • Find a technology partner to contribute specialist knowledge
  • Find companies in other countries with a recognised solvency that want to take part in a European project, thanks to our international working network
  • Advise you on project outline and management, offering you technical support if a UdG research group takes part in the research
  • Access grants for collaborative projects aimed at research centres and universities

The UdG guarantees you total confidentiality of any information provided or generated during the project, through a contract if required.

Get in touch with the Business Space to arrange a first meeting with the Campus’s Scientific Director to give us more information about the collaboration.
