What is the CIU3A?

It is the construction and launch of the Andalusia, Alentejo and Algarve University Innovation Centre (CIU3A), an innovation centre involving the universities of Seville, Evora and the Algarve and specializing in Industry 4.0, Logistics, Materials and Sustainability.

The scope includes a set of facilities, an initial management and organization system, and certain RDI activities.

Its cross-border nature allows it to take advantage of the opportunities linked to collaboration and complementarity among the universities; the economies of scale due to its multicentre character (one centre in each region); and the possibilities of using these real cross-border environments for RDI (e.g. logistics).

The principal result will be the CIU3A: new RDI infrastructure in the area of cross-border cooperation and a stable collaborative structure among the 3 universities and other partners.
