Welcome to CD6

The CD6 is a technological innovation centre located at the Campus of the UPC in Terrassa, which operates in the field of Optical Engineering. The activity of CD6 is aimed at creating value through innovation. Applied research developed by CD6 is defined in order the new knowledge generated, reaches the market as new products or new processes.

Almost 40 people with complementary expertise (Optics, Electronics, Mechanical and Software) work at CD6. This multidisciplinary combination is necessary to develop applications with a short time-to-market. The research results achieved at CD6 have led to the creation of several spin-off companies that manufacture and market new products in different sectors.

On this site you will find updated information about the center, about the research and innovation and about the scientific and technological results achieved by members of CD6.
