Engineering design, environment and waste management or Technology 4.0 are some of the issues addressed in the joint session between Ensa technicians and UC researchers

 Santander, June 12, 2019.- Exploring new collaboration opportunities in order to address different technological challenges and needs is the objective of the ninth annual meeting held this morning between the University of Cantabria and Equipos Nucleares, S.A., S.M.E. at the company’s facilities in Maliaño.

Each year a conference is organized with the participation of more than twenty researchers and technicians who highlight the potential areas of collaboration in different areas of knowledge, related to economic and business issues; design engineering; environment and waste management; projects with manufacturing; o Technology 4.0, among others.

Ensa’s Project director, Miguel Ángel Andérez, expressed his interest in “continuing to celebrate these joint days in which we intend to continue the collaborations that have been maintained over the years.” He also highlighted the importance of “making known the work that the company does to the university and what the university can contribute to the company.”

The rector of the UC, Angel Pazos Carro, described as “a privileged” the relationship between the UC and Ensa at the time of “exchange knowledge, develop applied projects, as well as to take advantage of the possibilities in both research and training.” For the rector, the meeting held today is on the way of “putting knowledge at the service of Ensa and at the same time, that Ensa can transmit its application needs to the university” and therefore, it is an “example of what that it has to be the transfer of knowledge technology between university and company”, he said.

For his part, the vice rector of Research and Knowledge Transfer, Javier Léon, pointed the close collaboration between UC and Ensa that serves to “put Ensa technicians in contact with UC researchers and meet their needs”.
