Universidad de Castilla – La Mancha – UCLM is a young university. From its foundation (1985), UCLM has grown at a high rate, attracting qualified human resources and providing the people in the region with high education skills. UCLM integrates 36 academic departments offering 45 degree qualifications. UCLM has two peculiar features: a) it is multi-disciplinary, undertaking work in practically all branches of knowledge; and b) its activities are very wide-ranging, embracing the spectrum from basic research to technological development. Moreover, promoting collaborations between industry and academia and favouring the dissemination of technological advances are part of our University’s missions, demonstrating the strong commitment that UCLM has with the productive sectors of the region. The Knowledge and Technology Transfer Office is the structure within the University that strongly collaborates in this task.
A total of 17 R&D contracts were managed under the 6th Framework Programme (FP6), and there are 35 approved projects under FP7 and CIP, not to mention other European and international programmes such as Interreg, JPEN or COST, inter alia, all of which are managed under supervision and collaboration of the European Projects Office at UCLM.
