• The goals of the institute are the generation, transfer and dissemination of new knowledge in the field of engineering in its broad sense. Through its lines of research, the institute has integrative activity between fields such as industrial production engineering and the automatic control of complex processes, social, hospital and medical robotics, environmental technology, hygrothermal conditioning and energy quality, simulation and modeling of complex systems, maintenance of infrastructure and heritage, etc.
  • Collaboration with other institutions of the University of Valladolid in the development of master's and doctoral programs, as well as other specialization courses and permanent training 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 final master's projects and doctoral theses, as well as the specialized training of researchers and technologists.)

Mission: research 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, acting as a bridge between university research and the necessary innovation for 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 complex systems modeling, environmental technologies, energy, and social and medical robotics.

Areas of research: ITAP members work in different fields of engineering, which can be grouped into the following three main areas of research:

  • Robotics and medical engineering
  • Complex systems modeling
  • Environmental technologies and energy

Training: ITAP channels its training activities for university technologists and researchers through the completion of numerous end-of-degree, master's and doctoral thesis projects on the subject of the institute and directed by its members.
