Within the terms of the agreement, the different centres will channel all the innovation projects developed in their hospitals through the CMTI, meeting the needs detected in the current Health Plan.   The agreement also opens new doors to the professionals of Germans Trias for their innovation projects.


CIMTI was created by Fundación LEITAT, with the support of the Catalan Government (Generalitat de Catalunya) Health Services Department, the Agency for Health Quality and Assessment of Catalonia (AQuAS) and with the collaboration of CIMIT in Boston.
