The MTG is a research group with more than 25 years of expertise, a solid knowledge base, and a team experienced in carrying out industrial projects, collaborating with relevant companies, and creating spin-offs. The group has been recognized as a TECNIO center, a quality accreditation granted by the Catalan government that identifies the best R&D groups that offer innovative technologies to companies.
The MTG is experienced in carrying out R&D projects in collaboration with companies. In these projects, we either develop specific technologies or adapt MTG technologies to the needs of the company.
All these projects involve a strong and fruitful collaboration between MTG researchers and the company. A common type of project is put together when a company wants to use one of our technologies and needs some support in order to adapt it to their particular application needs. In the last few years, we have collaborated very successfully with companies from a large variety of sectors.
Some of the products we have developed in collaboration with companies have had a relevant impact, such as Reactable or Vocaloid.
Discover our technologies available for commercial use:
Research collaborations with companies can be done through Industrial PhDs. This is a type of PhD in which the student carries their research jointly supervised by a university professor and an engineer from a company. There is some funding from public institutions to partially support industrial PhDs.
Industrial Training Program for Master Students
This program offers the opportunity for companies to shape the education of our master students by incorporating their technological needs in the work to be done by them. The most direct benefit for a company participating in this program is having access to a pool of great students and being involved in focusing their training on the topics of interest to the company.
Some of our success stories:
Reactable: Electronic musical instrument with a tabletop tangible user interface that became very popular after many musicians used it in their shows such as Björk or Coldplay.
Vocaloid: Singing voice synthesizer software developed in collaboration with Yamaha. It has been specially popular in Japan, due to the big impact of virtual singer Hatsune Miku.
BMAT: First spin-off of the MTG that became a successful company, dedicated to monitor and report music across televisions, radios, venues and digital services, providing data to creators, producers, publishers, CMOs, broadcasters, DSPs and clubs.
