ITI is a Reference Technological Centre specialized in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) Research, Development and Innovation, offering to the computer industry the possibility of adding new technologies and capabilities developed in R&D&I projects to their products, processes or businesses. It was established in 1994 by a joint initiative of the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV), the Institute of Small and Medium Enterprises of Valencia (IMPIVA), and a group of companies in the information technology sector. It has a team of 150 technologists, with extensive experience in the area of interoperability, real time and complex systems, embedded systems, quality and security and reference platforms and has participated in many national and international research projects in this field, in collaboration with companies and institutions.
As a reference technology centre is part of the main structures at regional and national levels in Spain related to the generation and transference of technologies, highlighting in this sense its belonging to the Valencian Network of Technological Institutes (REDIT), composed by 14 sectors, with more than 7000 associated companies. ITI has direct links with all these sectors (Metal-mechanics, Ceramics, Plastics, Optics, Energy, Textile, ...).
Moreover, ITI is also member of national and European structures and associations related to the definition of research strategies or initiatives in different domains. Among these associations and structures can be highlighted the following: INTERVAL (http://interval.interop-vlab.es), INTERPOP-VLab (http://www.interop-vlab.eu/). INES (http://www.ines.org.es/), NESSI (http://www.nessi-europe.com/), es.Internet (http://www.esinternet.imasdtic.es/), Prometeo (http://www.prometeo-office.org/) and ARTEMIS (http://www.artemis-ju.eu/) or Net!Works (http://www.networks-etp.eu/).
ITI is preparing a proposal in Objective ICT-2013.6.4 Optimising Energy Systems in Smart Cities and wants to close the consortium with a new partner acting as an ESCO.
In addition, ITI will launch a proposal in Objective ICT-2013.1.2 Software Engineering, Services and Cloud Computing and is looking for partners.
Finally, we are working on a proposal in Objective ICT-2013.6.6 Integrated personal mobility for smart cities and we are looking for mobility managers in cities and Human Machine Interface experts.
