CIMTI is an instrument at the service of the catalan health and social system

We aim to make the high-impact health and social innovations available for citizens



CIMTI supports projects both in the maturation phase and in the implementation stage. We contribute to the maturation of projects by facilitating work meetings with our network of experts, from both the CIMTI community and the CIMIT of Boston. We give support in the areas of business, market, public purchase, regulatory, clinical, technology, investment and communication.

Our team will guide projects following an own methodology which has been adapted from the CIMIT of Boston methodology. And we do not stop here. We are the only instrument that accompanies projects in their implementation both in Catalonia and internationally. We facilitate the meetings, contacts and means to make it possible.

Our story

CIMTI was created in 2017 as an initiative with the aim to improve, at national level, the conversion ratio of scientific research on innovation. Thus, CIMTI is singled out as a project that seeks to ensure that research excellence is reflected in innovation excellence. CIMTI reinforces innovation structures, processes and policies based on promoting disruptive and incremental initiatives, with high health and social impact.

The promoter entity of CIMTI is Fundación LEITAT, with the support from the Catalan Government (Generalitat de Catalunya) Health Services Department, the Agency for Health Quality and Assessment of Catalonia (AQuAS, as per the acronym in Catalan), the Social Work “La Caixa” and a strategic alliance with the CIMIT of Boston.
