- The institute’s objectives are the generation, transfer and dissemination of new knowledge in the field of engineering in its broad sense. Through its research lines, the institute has integrating activity between fields such as industrial production engineering and automatic control of complex processes, social, hospital and medical robotics, environmental technology, hygrothermal conditioning and energy quality, simulation and modeling of complex systems, infrastructure and heritage maintenance, etc.
- Collaboration with other institutions of the University of Valladolid in the development of master’s and doctorate programs, as well as other specialization and ongoing training courses are also objectives of the institute.
- It will carry out outreach activities in a way that guarantees social visibility. Likewise, to evaluate their productivity, quantifiable scientific objectives will be pursued (scientific publications, patents, competitive research projects and contracts with companies and institutions, without forgetting the preparation of master’s thesis and doctoral theses, as well as the specialized training of researchers and technologists)
Mission: to investigate in the modeling of complex systems, in environmental and energy technologies and in social and medical robotics, enabling the effective transfer of knowledge and technology in these fields of industrial engineering, bridging the gap between university research and the innovation necessary to institutions and companies.
Vision: ITAP is an effective bridge that connects technological knowledge in the field of industrial engineering with the needs of companies and institutions in the field of modeling complex systems, environmental technologies, energy and medical and social robotics.
Research areas: ITAP members work in different fields of engineering, which can be grouped into the following three main research areas:
- Robotics and medical engineering
- Modeling complex systems
- Environmental technologies and energy
Training: ITAP channels its training activities for university technologists and researchers by carrying out numerous end-of-degree projects, master’s and doctoral theses on the institute’s own subject matter and led by its members.
