TECNALIA is the largest center of applied research and technological development in Spain, a benchmark in Europe and a member of the Basque Research and Technology Alliance. We collaborate with companies and institutions to improve their competitiveness, people’s quality of life and achieve sustainable growth. We do it thanks to people who are passionate about technology and committed to building a better society.

  • Our Mission: To transform technological research into prosperity.
  • Our Vision: To be agents of transformation of companies and society for their adaptation to the challenges of a changing future.

We work with an increasingly strategic business relationship model based on trust, collaboration, and a shared technological approach, whereby our main scopes of action are: smart manufacturing, digital transformation, energy transition, sustainable mobility,  Personalised health, urban ecosystem and circular economy.

We are the first private Spanish organisation in contracting, participation, and leadership in the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme and we are ranked third in European patent applications.

Products and services

Tecnalia's Health Unit develops assets and R&D projects for medical devices in the following areas: neuromodulation (pain, sleep, respiratory, cardio, neurology), regenerative medicine (3D printing, tissue engineering), diagnostic devices (in vitro and in vivo), medical robotics and digital health (artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, medical imaging); and performs validation of biomedical devices according to the regulatory one. In addition, it has a business line focused on healthy food (natural ingredients and their effect on the microbiome, probiotics).

Areas of interest for future collaborations


We foster the development of customised products and services in prevention, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and rehabilitation phases, through an integrated approach that includes genetics, nutrition and physical and social environments, as the main variables that affect people's health.
