R+D+i groups are the basic structure to carry out research within the University. They consist of voluntarily assembled teams of UPV staff which share common research interests and work on common research strands. They may comprise teaching staff, grant holders, assistants, etc. One of their main aims is to satisfy the technological and artistic needs of both our University and our social environment. They are mainly characterised by the research strands they work on and by their specific technological outcomes. There are currently over 350 registered groups.
