Leartiker has joined the European Union Manifesto for Covid-19 Research

Aware of its responsibility as a technology and research center that seeks innovative solutions, Leartiker has joined the Manifesto for Covid-19 Research of the European Union. The Manifesto seeks to maximize the accessibility of research results in the fight against Covid-19. By signing this manifesto, Leartiker agrees and supports: making research data available through the European COVID-19 Data Platform and grants licensing intellectual property resulting from EU-funded research.



Immersed in the development of medical prototypes for pediatrics, cell therapy and apnea within the LGMed project

Leartiker leads the European LGMed project in which five other partners (a university, two business promotion centers and two hospitals in the Spain-France cross-border region) participate and aim to promote the development of 4 prototypes of medical devices. This project which is co-financed 65% by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the Interreg POCTEFA Program, began last June with a telematic “kick off meeting”.



Clinical trials begin to validate the medical device developed in the INTELOST project led by Leartiker

The clinical trials of the INTELOST project led by Leartiker and carried out together with Biocruces (OSI Basurto) and the University of Deusto will start the first week of November. These trials will last 6 months and will serve for the validation in real clinical use of the personalized and sensorized device developed to improve the lives of ostomy patients at the Basurto Hospital.



We have a new doctor at Leartiker, CONGRATULATIONS AIZETI!

It seems like yesterday that we first saw our partner Aizeti enter Leartiker. It has been three years since that day and her work in this short period of time has been impressive. And if that were not enough, she has also been able to complete her doctoral thesis.



Leartiker improves its capacity for dynamic characterization of polymeric materials with its new METRAVIB DMA + 300 equipment

The Leartiker technology center has taken a leap in improving its capabilities for the dynamic characterization of polymeric materials through the acquisition of METRAVIB DMA + 300. This is a new equipment for dynamic mechanical analysis (known by its acronym in English as Dynamic Mechanical Analysis , DMA).



Closely following the latest developments in DIGIMAT composite material modeling software

Leartiker has not failed with its annual Digimat Users Meeting. This event, which is always held in person, has gone virtual this year due to the pandemic.



Turning plastic waste into sustainable products for maritime industries

Leartiker and Azaro Fundazioa have held a workshop within the European CIRCULARSEAS project • The project focuses on promoting the circular economy with the aim of transforming plastic waste into sustainable products for the marine industry. • More sustainable products have been identified that can be developed within the project through the use of 3D printing technology. • The CircularSeas project contributes to the Circular Economy strategy of the Basque Country thanks to the integration of the maritime sector and the Circular Economy.



A turnover of € 3M, more than 40 researchers, international projects and collaborations with companies:Leartiker's balance sheet after 5 years since its constitution as a cooperative
