Since 1983, The Research Centre for Biomedical Engineering (CREB) of Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) has been serving the needs of research, technological development, innovation and knowledge transfer of companies, hospitals and institutions related to the field of Health technologies.
The CREB UPC ’s multidisciplinary staff includes more than 100 researchers, doctors (60%) and graduates in engineering and other disciplines. Our research teams and facilities are in two campus: at the heart of UPC’s Pedralbes campus, and in the new Diagonal-Besos campus, taking advantage of the strength and synergies of our research teams to provide solutions to any need or demand from the biomedical field.
Our applied research is organized in nine research areas: Computer Graphics & Serious Games; Biomaterials, Biomechanics & Tissue engineering; Instrumentation and e-Health; Robotics and vision; Dosimetry and medical radiation; Movement analysis Lab; Bioinformatics and biosignals Lab; Biosignal Analysis for Rehabilitation and Therapy; Biomedical Signals and Systems. From these areas we support and promote innovation and collaboration, as well as excellence in research, scholarship, and training.
