University of 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 at UCLM under FP6 and there are 35 approved projects under FP7 and CIP, besides other European and international programs such as Interreg, JPEN or COST, inter alia, all of which are managed under supervision and collaboration of the European Projects Office at UCLM. Moreover, UCLM has a wide experience in participating in Marie Curie Grants, since it has hosted several projects both under FP6 and FP7, including two RTN networks in FP6 and three ITN networks in FP7, as well as two IEFs, two Reintegration Grants, one IAPP and two IRSES grants (among other schemes).
