The Telecommunications Technological Center of Catalonia has recently received the TECNIO accreditation, a distinction awarded by ACC10 (http://accio.gencat.cat) the Catalan Agency for Enterprise Innovation (Generalitat de Catalunya). The goal of the TECNIO accreditation is to identify agents in the R&D&i system with differential technology capabilities as well as an outstanding record track of technology and knowledge transfer activities towards the industry. It is also a vehicle to stimulate the alignment with the regional innovation strategies (RIS3) set forth by the European Union. Congratulations!!
