Plaza de Ernest Lluch i Martín, 5
08019 – Barcelona
Telefónica I+D center was opened in Barcelona in 2002.
It was created by agreement signed on the 21st of March, 2001 between the Generalitat of Catalunya and Telefónica, with the objectives of promoting the development of the Society of Information and Communication in Catalonia, and becoming a reference within the technological innovation of this community, collaborating with universities, institutions and Catalan companies.
The center of Barcelona performs activities in which Telefónica is a leader, such as the development of new multimedia services and its application in people´s everyday life: company, home, leisure world, telemedicine or tele-education. It also collaborates on projects at local level and those financed by the state or by the European Union.
In 2006 this center became the Center of Excellence in the areas of Internet and Multimedia of Telefónica I+D, an area where the company had already achieved major successes, as the creation and development of Imagenio, digital interactive television of Telefónica.
Following the transformation that Telefónica is experiencing, it has developed several key actions:
Creation of Internet and Multimedia scientific groups
Commitment for innovation projects, supported by the Telefónica innovation plan.
Emphasis in collaboration with other companies and co-design with users.
