In 2011, the former Ministry of Science and Innovation Ministry (Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness at present), promoted the creation of the INNPULSO Network based on the towns who had been awarded the distinction of the City of Science and Innovation. This award recognizes the efforts made to promote the knowledge and science, innovation, tecnology and social infrastructures  towards promoting sustainable economic model.

Under INNPULSO Network, the City of Terrassa has launched a campaign to raise awareness of the scientific and technological activities that are taking place in the city.

In addition to the main results presented in numerous international publications and scientific meetings, research developed by CD6 in this field has resulted in the company Visiometrics located in Terrassa, that manufactures instruments for assessing the quality of vision .
