INEGI - Instituto de Ciência e Inovação em Engenharia Mecânica e Engenharia Industrial
Campus da FEUP, Rua Dr. Roberto Frias, N.º 400; 4200-465 Porto; Portugal
The mission of INEGI is to contribute for the economic and social competitiveness, through technology-based innovation applied to industrial processes, products and business models, as well as the development of R&D, technology transfer and innovation management best-practices.
INEGI’s core competences are experimental mechanics, engineering design, materials, industrial processes, renewable energies, and industrial engineering and management.
INEGI hosts 116 PhD integrated members, and more than 100 associated members, being the largest Portuguese group on R&D and I&TT, in the field of Mechanical Engineering.
As a non-profit organisation counts with 86 shareholders representing the University, public institutions, industrial associations, and 76 private companies. The Equity Capital of INEGI is more than 3 MEuro.
INEGI has a workforce of about 200 people and a total turnover of 8 million Euros. More than 50% of the turnover comes from R&D, Innovation, Technology Transfer and Advanced Engineering Services 100% funded by companies.
