CARTIF is a leading Spanish Applied Research Centre in terms of R&D and technology transfer activities. Legally established as a Foundation (private non-profit research centre), our main goals are to identify technology needs and develop R&D-based knowledge, to support technological innovation in industry, mainly among SMEs and to disseminate R&D and innovation results.
CARTIF is a multidisciplinary centre that works in multiple knowledge fields focused to many economic sectors: energy, food, industry, construction and infrastructures, health or environment. Nowadays, CARTIF employs 185 people, mainly engineers, scientists and senior researchers working in three technical divisions, including the Energy Division involved in ONEPlanET Project.
