INESC TEC is a non-profit association that is dedicated to scientific investigation and technological development, technology transference, consulting and advanced training and pre-incubation of new companies under a technological basis. 

The Universidade do Porto, INESC, Instituto Politécnico do Porto, Universidade do Minho, and Universidade de Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro are INESC TEC associates (UM and UTAD since February 2019). Currently, INESC TEC centres are situated in Porto, Braga and Vila Real. By the end of 2020, the 13 I&D Centres from INESC TEC hosted 732 integrated investigators (354 PhD’s), among effective investigators, Superior Education Institutes, grantees investigators and associate investigators. INESC TEC’s team still includes trainees and tech support, and administration staff. 

While an interface institution between the academic and corporate world, brings academia, companies, public administration and society together, through their model of science management, INESC TEC boosts their knowledge and results generated under the investigation scope, in projects of technology transference, seeking both impacts in the creation of value as well as social relevance.

INESC TEC has the vision to be a relevant international player in Science and Technology under domains such as Computer Systems, Industry and Innovation, Smart System Networks and Energy.
