The continuous technological development promoted by UC’S different R&D units, addresses the challenges involved in the design, operation and regulation of technologies, bringing together teachers from different scientific disciplines with a long experience in teaching, research, technology transfer and consultancy in different areas in the context of technology.

UC offers advanced training programs in different areas that bind to technology, where we highlight those related to MIT Portugal Program and Associated Laboratories, like ADAI (Association for the Development of Industrial Aerodynamics) , CNC (Centre for Neuroscience and Cell Biology), IMAR (Marine and Environmental Research Centre), INESCC (Institute for Systems Engineering and Computers at Coimbra), ISR-UC (Institute of Systems and Robotics - University of Coimbra), IT (Telecommunications Institute – Coimbra Pole) and LIP Coimbra (Laboratory of Instrumentation and Experimental Particle Physics).

The offer in technological research makes UC an undeniable reference in R&D in Portugal, which highlights the excellence of work developed by the R&D units of UC. UC stands out also on technology transfer being involved in the promotion of several initiatives, like IPN Incubator and Biocant, and in the creation of diverse technological spin-offs, as Active Space Technologies, Artscan, Crioestaminal, Critical Software, Feedzai, InfoGene, Inogate, iNovmapping, ISA Intellicare, Luzitin, Move Mile, Sensebloom, SPI and Take The Wind, amongst others.

The University of Coimbra is today an example of dynamism in its constant search for improvement and enhancement of knowledge, research and technology contributing decisively to the improvement of science, technology and to the enhancement of knowledge as an essential element of people's lives.
