Instituto Universitario de Microelectrónica Aplicada (IUMA)

IUMA started its activities back in the late 1980 by coordinated synergies of a qualified group of researchers and experts from the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC). Within the field of research, IUMA has a strong presence in diverse initiatives. Some of our members participate in the Steering Committee of international conferences or have been chairing some of them (DATE, ICECS, ISQUED, PATMOS, Euromicro, SPIE, DCIS…) while others are part of the Editorial Board of International journals.

IUMA members have published more than 300 papers in well-known journals and conferences. In the development field, IUMA owns state-of-the-art equipment and software tools to produce new technology products for industries located in USA, Europe and Australia.

Our participation in the EUROPRACTICE initiative as co-founder, gives us direct access to diverse facilities and microelectronic technologies with great interest for the industrial segment.

IUMA is also promoting innovation in the local sector by collaborating with emerging enterprises. Furthermore, during the last 15 years we have participated in the cration of 8 spin-off, being a valuable factor of innovation in the Canary Islands.
