IDEKO’S TURNOVER WAS €9.8 MILLION IN 2021, DRIVEN BY ITS MODEL OF TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER TO COMPANIES

23 de May de 2022The IDEKO research centre, specialist in advanced manufacturing technologies, is maintaining its business growth and strengthening its technology transfer to industry model with a nearly €10 million turnover last year; 48% of which came from contracts with companies.

Specifically, the centre, a member of the Basque Research and Technology Alliance (BRTA), had an income of €4.7 million from R&D projects with companies in 2021, principally from the machine tool, aeronautics, steel, oil and gas, and energy sectors. While the remaining €5.1 million (52% of the total) stems from its own research activities.

As regards its own research projects, 29% of the overall income of the centre was from programs driven by the Basque Government, 15% from initiatives promoted by different European institutions and 8% had their origin in projects financed by the General State Administration and the Mondragon Corporation.

Moreover, the research centre carried out all this activity without losing sight of scientific production and while continuing its information dissemination activity, with 33 indexed publications in total, of which nine were Q1, a ranking that indicates the excellence of the publications, and it reached the figure of 40 active patents, 7 of which were granted during the financial year.

The results obtained by IDEKO over the past year were approved last Friday 6 May at the General Meeting of the research centre. The event, which was chaired by Xabier Alzaga, president of IDEKO, was again carried out in mixed format, in-person and remotely, by means of a streaming videoconference. The meeting was attended by worker members, representatives of user-member companies, as well as representatives of collaborator-member companies of the centre.

During the meeting, the IDEKO president valued the results recorded by the research centre in 2021, despite the situation of uncertainty experienced during the two years of the pandemic, and he wanted to especially thank the contribution “of all those people that form part of the centre”, for their resilience, their capability to adapt to the needs at the time, providing a relevant response and adding value to customers through innovative and differentiating technological solutions that are helping them recover from the crisis.

Nerea Aranguren, Managing Director of the research centre, for her part, stressed that 2021 had been “positive” both from the point of view of research and the technology transfer to company projects, and highlighted that the data obtained over the past financial year was “a new milestone in the consolidation of the technology transfer model built by IDEKO and the stability of its customer portfolio”.
