The I3PT was one of the first research centers in Spain associated with a hospital that created one innovation department (UDIPT), and also one of the pioneers in implementing a quality system for research and innovation (UNE 166002). During these years, the UDIPT has been an important and active member of the Spanish Innovation Platform in Medical and Health Technologies (ITEMAS), contributing to its development and growth since its creation in 2010.
Thanks to the experience acquired during all these years, the UDIPT has been improving its innovation model, adapting it to the institutional needs, to our professionals and to the available resources, in order to be more efficient and successful. In this sense, our model is committed to the complete support of our professionals and a total alignment between the Institute and the hospital.
The innovation model of Parc Taulí is characterized by being one model 360, in other words that is, of continuous improvement. Our model addresses all phases of the innovation process, from the capture of the idea to the transfer to the market or its internal implementation, through prototyping, proof of concept and clinical validation. Throughout the process, the UDIPT accompanies the professional in the valorization of his idea, the search for financing and from collaborators, as well as in defining the best strategy for intellectual protection and from technology transfer.
