UFI (Unidad de Formación e Investigación). Research and Training Unit
Name: Research and training Unit
Funding: University of the Basque Country (EHU/UPV)
Period: 2011 – 2015
The Research and Training Unit is comprised of five research groups belonging to the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering in Bilbao, University of The Basque Country (UPV/EHU). Its main objectives cover three important fields: sustainability engineering and structural and mechanic design, high performance eco-manufacture and sustainability construction.
The activities of the Compmech Research group are focused on sustainability engineering and structural and mechanical design. Inside this area works enclose basic and applied research regarding eco-design, calculus and mechanical analysis of structural components, mechanisms and machines.
The UFI collaborates also with Bordeaux Institut de Mécanique et Ingénierie (I2M). The aim of the project is to go into partnership with several departments of the I2M, achieving an UFI structure on a new European Associated Laboratory.
