BRTA - Basque Research and Technology Alliance

The Basque Research and Technology Alliance (BRTA) was set up to address the industrial challenges currently faced by the Basque Country and to compete with leading international corporations in the area of research and technological development. This great partnership will be the spearhead for Basque research in Europe and the rest of the world.

BRTA was set up based on a collaborative agreement signed by 16 technology centres (Azterlan, Azti, Ceit, Cidetec, Gaiker, Ideko, Ikerlan, Lortek, Neiker, Tecnalia, Tekniker and Vicomtech) and cooperative research centres (CIC bioGUNE, CIC biomaGUNE, CIC energiGUNE, CIC nanoGUNE), together with the Basque Government, the Provincial Councils of Álava, Bizkaia and Gipuzkoa and Grupo SPRI.
