This is understood by the Car industry cluster (GIRA) and also at the Nuclear industry cluster (Clúster de la industria nuclear, CINC). In both groupings the Components Technological Centre has a presence on the governing bodies (the Executive Committee of the GIRA and the Technical Secretariat of the CINC) and also has a proactive presence in its projects and measures. It is not for nothing that both the GIRA and the CINC have set up R+D+I committees in which the CTC plays a relevant role.
The joining of the Sea of Innovation Cantabria Cluster (SICC), in which it occupies the vice-presidency, and the Cantabria Maritime Cluster (Clúster Marítimo de Cantabria, MARCA) in which the CTC acts as the secretary, confirms the relationship of the centre with this business model in connection with its corporative philosophy, both in its work of improving the competitiveness of companies by innovation and in its dissemination of a culture of innovation.
In addition, CTC is a member and promoter of the innovation strategy in the clusters:
– Clúster de la Industria de Defensa de Cantabria (C+I+D)
– Clúster Comportamiento e Investigación del Fuego en Cantabria (CIF Cantabria)
– Clúster de la Industria del Besaya
– Clúster TERA, Asociación de Tecnologías de la Información y la Comunicación de Cantabria
