ALLIANCE

DESCRIPTION & HISTORY

An alliance of 7 Technology Centres with cutting-edge knowledge and technologies, commitment to key productive sectors and a vocation to serve society and business.

The Galician Intersectoral Technology Alliance (ATIGA) was created in 2012 by AIMEN, ANFACO-CECOPESCA and CTAG. Subsequently, GRADIANT was integrated in 2013, and ENERGYLAB and ITG, at the beginning of 2015. The latest incorporation has been CETIM, so that the alliance includes the seven Galician technology centres of a national nature.

Thanks to the sum of the capacities of these benchmark technology centres, it is a strategic ally in R&D&I for Galician business, offering extensive experience in the development of innovation projects, both its own and in collaboration with other companies and for the main strategic sectors in Galicia.

Through cooperation among its members, ATIGA works to achieve technological excellence, encourage joint participation in the development of large national and EU consortia projects and offer companies greater opportunities to operate internationally.

Currently, it is the main Alliance in the field of innovation in Galicia and the largest mobilising agent of business R&D&I, placing innovation as a basic axis for the improvement of the productive fabric and the modernisation of industry. Its great challenge is to position Galicia as a technological reference, joining efforts to compete at national and European level. ATIGA works with the Public Administrations in the definition of R&D&I policies.
