IED Companies is the department that arranges and develops the relation with business networks at local, national and international level, with the objective of researching and developing design applied to the companies’ realities. For IED, proactive collaboration between academic and labour worlds is a key value to create synergies and opportunities for joint projects that bring together creativity and innovation.
Currently, IED collaborates with large, small and medium companies which participate actively in projects, workshops, conferences and activities, with the aim of providing knowledge, transmitting experiences and sharing creative and theoretical aspects with students. All degree final projects are developed within a collaboration frame with companies, offering students a training for their professional future while facilitating relations in the labour environment.
