The Parc Taulí Research and Innovation Institute (I3PT) is the result of the integration of excellence in knowledge and the innovative and improvement capacity of research groups, integrated into the lines of research and belonging to the constituent entities of the Institute: Consorci Corporació Sanitària Parc Taulí de Sabadell, Fundació Parc Taulí, UDIAT Diagnostic Center, Sabadell Senior Citizen Service Center i Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
The tradition of years of work together between the five entities, together with the sum of scientific knowledge and research capabilities of all of them, the results achieved in recent years and the uniqueness of the management of innovation in medical technologies, it is the constitution of the I3PT as the next step necessary to strengthen this joint trajectory further and provide better management tools and opportunities to continue improving and growing in R&D results.
The I3PT maintains and enhances research activity in the areas in which they are scientifically excellent, but without losing sight of everything that is transferable to the market, that is, all the potential innovations that will be treated initially as strategic until they are evaluated, regardless of the line or scientific area in which they belong. The excellence is a strategic pillar but also the sustainability. The transferable products in the market must contribute to the sustaining of the Institute's innovation model, either through value and marketing catching business. globally, or through its internal application to the own health activity of the institutions that are part of the Institute.
The research carried out at the Institute meets the criteria of quality, sustainability and excellence.
