Research at the FPMs in figures:

  • 240 academic and scientific staff
  • More than 120 theses supervised per year

  • More than 300 international publications per year
  • 12 million euros of research contracts per year
  • 4 specific research centres:
    • MULTITEL (telecommunications, signal and image processing)
    • CETIC (computer science)
    • MATERIA NOVA (materials science)
    • INISMA (ceramics)

Research at the FPMs can lead to the creation of spin-off companies in various fields (video surveillance, medical informatics, decision-making, free software, smart clothing, speech synthesis, industrial risks, vibration and acoustics, and many more). Some of our spin-offs are even active internationally, such as the Acapela group.
