The IACTEC team
IACTEC has a highly qualified team of professionals in the fields of engineering and science integrated within the structure of the IAC. It has the technical support of the Institute, particularly the Instrumentation Division, which has 30 years' technical knowledge in developing cutting-edge technology.
The Cabildo of Tenerife, through its "Agustín de Betancourt" Fostering Knowledge and Technology Transfer programme, has financed the employment of the first eight IACTEC engineers through the "IACTEC Technological Training" project. This project has as its aims to:
From 2018 onwards, IACTEC will be located in the new Science Park of La Laguna, close to the IAC and the University campuses of the city. It will comprise a purpose-built headquarters (now under construction) that will offer businesses a space of more than 4000 m2, equipped with infrastructure, including offices, meeting rooms, clean rooms, multipurpose laboratories, storage areas, computer rooms, common areas, and underground parking.
The building will be integrated in a 30,000 m2 space, shared with other buildings for business and technological use ("Nanosustain" of the ULL), and an urban park with sports facilities, children's play spaces and 13,000 m2 of green space.
Until the inauguration of its new headquarters, IACTEC will form part of IAC Headquarters in La Laguna and will share facilities with Grantecan, S.A.
