About Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC


The Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - BarcelonaTech is a public institution dedicated to higher education and research in the fields of engineering, architecture and science, which contributes its knowledge and expertise in order to increase scientific output, transfer its results to society and provide a network of scientific and technical state-of-the-art facilities and technology valorization services that place us at the leading edge of innovation and economic development.

The UPC has established itself as a driver of innovation and is the technology partner of choice for companies and organizations with which it develops projects and builds partnerships. A role borne out by the numerous agreements and research projects that have been set in motion by groups, organizations and laboratories; the creation of new technology-based companies; the generation and exploitation of patents, and the scientific and technical services UPC makes available to its environment in order to generate progress and employment.

The Technology Transfer Office (SGI) is responsible of Designing, coordinating and implementing research valorisation strategies, carrying out the protection policy of the research results, marketing these results through license contracts and designing and setting up the University's enterprise creation model in order to transfer the results of the research to the market, protect and commercialize these results, promote the culture of entrepreneurship and innovation, and create technology-based companies within the UPC environment.

A technology that enables the communication from an off-the-shelf Wi-Fi device to non-Wi-Fi Internet of Things appliances, only through a software up-date. Partners to further develop the system and/or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought[…]

The invention relates to a system and to a method for characterizing, designing and/or modifying optical properties of hybrid diffractive/refractive lenses with no need of manufacturing such a lens.[…]

We have developed a new algorithm for ordering anterior chamber OCT images in such a way that it is possible to classify them, in a fully unsupervised manner, in meaningful groups according to relevant features. We have tested the algorithm with a large set of images classified by two expert ophthal[…]

The present invention relates to an axial flux switched reluctance machine, comprising at least a stator with poles distributed along a first circumferential path on a plane with electromagnet coils wound on at least some of the stator poles. Partners to further develop the machine and/or to establ[…]

A new method has been developed for the assessment of the intraocular scattering generated in each structure of the human eye, i.e., the cornea and the crystalline lens. Based on a non-invasive recording of images of the light reflect- ed on the different surfaces of the eye (Purkinje images) and th[…]

An innovative system to modify the surface integrity, i.e. surface texture and roughness, hardness and residual stress, of previously milled workpieces has been developed. The system can be easily integrated in real manufacturing environments, but should be tested with that aim. Partners to further […]

A new system for the assessment of the tear film quality and the diagnosis of dry-eye has been developed. Based on a non-invasive recording of images of the light reflected on the tear-film of the eye, posterior image processing allows the objective assessment of dry-eye. It’s a simple and cost-effe[…]
