I3A - Instituto de Investigación en Ingeniería de Aragón

Key Projects

The I3A handles between 200 and 300 local, regional, national and international projects each year. These involve basic or applied research orientations and the management of both publicly or privately funded budgets. Particularly, the groups of the I3A have participated in the last 5 years in more than 300 national research projects, including 25 of the prestigious CENIT program and 29 of the new innovation program INNPACTO, as well as 22 european projects.
We consider certain projects as being key projects due to their relevance, showing the quality of the Institute and its researchers. These include the following:

Is your heart aging well? A systems biology to characterize cardiac aging from the cell to the body surface (ERC Starting Grant): MODELAGE proposes a multi-scale,multi-factorial research that is expected to make an important step in the characterization of human heart aging at both the population and individual levels.
The Action will develop a service that combines data on air quality, weather conditions, and traffic flows in order to allow citizens and municipalities to estimate the level of pollution resulting from varying traffic flow conditions.
The service will be deployed in several European cities. Related datasets (including metadata) will be published on portals harvested by the European Data Portal.

PRIMAGE will address the study of two types of pediatric cancer that have high mortality and therapeutic complexity: neuroblastoma and diffuse trunk-brain glioma

The objective of EndoMapper is to establish the foundations for autonomous navigation and construction of 3D maps of the interior of the human body from images of medical endoscopy.

SPAGYRIA is a cross-border cooperation project that, through a network of special employment centers and research centers, intends the cultivation of aromatic plants and their laboratory processing, as well as the investigation of innovative processes with the use of fully sustainable technologies, for the development of natural cosmetic products with ecological certification, according to a new certification standard.

The CURABONE project aims to advance in the advancement and combination of different technologies, to achieve specific patient treatments in case of bone fractures.

Developing Data-Intensive Cloud Applications with Iterative Quality Enhancements : Internet produces enormous quantities of information every day and exploiting this resource is vital for businesses and governments.  In the years to come we will see software programmes that take advantage of this wealth of information, so called “data-intensive applications”.

Microfluidic technology-based “Organs-on-a-chip” represents a powerful tool for investigating rare disease mechanisms and testing new drug and treatment due to their ability to mimic tailored micro-environment architecture inspired by organ-level functions in vivo

The objective of POSITION-II is to bring innovation in the development and production of smart catheters by the introduction of open technology platforms for miniaturization, AD conversion at the tip, ultra-sound MEMS devices and encapsulation.

PRIME will narrow the gap between Microfluidics and non-specialized laboratories and end-users enabling the spread and penetration of the technology in diverse application fields as well as its geographical expansion to areas where large equipment is difficult to transport or resources are scarce.
