Cartif has been participating in the CDTI R&D program since its inception, through the development of technology for companies and supporting the placing on the market of the technologies developed.
CARTIF as a technological center regulated by RD 2093/2008 must achieve that at least 30% of its turnover comes from private funds of companies. That is why CDTI financing is a driving lever to achieve compliance with this indicator.
The Center has collaborated with companies from many sectors contributing to the improvement of their competitiveness, improving and giving greater value to their processes and products.
