The generation of an industrial ecosystem with a high added value has demanded that that companies in the GARAIA environment have leading Technology Centres to meet their needs. Its innovative attitude is channelled through its 15 technology centres and Business R&D Units (IK4-Ikerlan, IK4-Ideko, IK4-Lortek, Fagor Aotek, Cikatek, CS Stirling Centre, Edertek, ETIC, ISEA, Koniker, Leartiker, MIK, MTC-Maier, Orona EIC, and ULMA PTC) which are positioned at the vanguard of technology in Europe and participate in a number of national and international research and technological development projects.

These Technology Centres and Business R&D Units cover various industrial sectors, such as Transport, Industrial Equipment, Energy, Sustainability and Health, based on different fields of knowledge, such as Mechatronics, Power Electronics, Advanced Manufacturing, Embedded Electronics (TEICs), Efficiency and Storage, and Micro-Technologies.

This concentration of technological capabilities makes the GARAIA Ecosystem a privileged place for industrial companies that have a high technological component and compete internationally, or intend to.
