CIC microGUNE is a Cooperative Research Centre created with the aim of becoming a new model of scientific/technological alliance for carrying out excellent research, integrating the capacities of different agents in the Basque Science, Technology and Innovation Network in the strategic field of microtechnologies, to contribute to raising the competitiveness level of the Basque Country’s business sector.
This is the result of the strategic alliance of the CEIT, IKERLAN and TEKNIKER research centres, the MONDRAGON UNIBERTSITATEA and TECNUN universities, with the support of the MONDRAGON group, and the collaboration of IMEC (Microelectronic Interuniversity Centre (Belgium)), for technological research and development of micro-nanotechnology.
CIC microGUNE is a high performance cooperation platform that brings together the capacities of different, geographically separate research groups, in a single market/technology project.
The activity is carried out through three research units specialising in: Microsensors, Microfluidics and Micro/Nanoengineering.
The Microtechnology activities include the design, manufacturing and packaging of micro-nanodevices and components that can be used in a wide spectrum of applications, including the car industry, biomedicine, energy saving and ICT.
