Fundacio Barcelona Media

Barcelona Media is a centre for advanced technology dedicated to applied research and the transfer of knowledge and technology as a means to boost the competitiveness of the media and communications sector.

Barcelona Media is a non-profit foundation whose Board of Trustees is made up of representatives from universities, public administrations and companies from the communications sector.

Barcelona Media’s activities encompass four key areas:

  • Promoting and implementing R&D+I projects. Barcelona Media helps its clients determine their strategic needs and identify the research, development and innovation projects that will help them become more competitive and achieve an ambitious return in a reasonable amount of time.
  • Fostering collaborative R&D+I projects. Barcelona Media is a neutral partner that helps its clients throughout the entire process of preparing proposals and implementing publicly funded collaborative R&D&I projects. Since the beginning, Barcelona Media has fostered the forming of strong consortia between international organisations and companies that have shared objectives and ambitions.
  • Acting as a bridge between academic and industrial research. Barcelona Media enables its clients to access the most cutting-edge technology in the field of communications and helps them use it to meet their specific needs.
  • Innovating. Barcelona Media adds innovation to companies that are developing new products and services and helps set up more efficient production processes. It achieves this through the efforts of its three specialist-service laboratories.

Barcelona Media’s integrated quality and environmental management system has obtained international ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certification.
