UPF's Department of Information and Communication Technologies (DTIC) has been constantly working to obtain competive projects since 2007.

This UPF department is obtaining competitive projects in all the categories of the European Research Area in its own right.  Interdisciplinarity is a distinguishing feature of the DTIC

The research done at the DTIC is organised in eighteen groups and covers a wide range of areas including networking, wireless communication, multimedia, image and sound processing, medical imaging, interactive technologies, robotics, artificial intelligence, computational neurosciences and cognitive sciences, among others.
