AITEX is a private non-profit making association created in 1985 thanks to an initiative of the local industry and the Generalitat Valenciana (Regional government) through the Valencia Enterprises Competitiveness Institute (IVACE, Instituto Valenciano de Competitividad Empresarial), as an institution that has a common infrastructure for making possible its efforts in themes such as innovation, training, development and applied research. Its ultimate aim is to make this sector more competitive. To achieve this, the Institute promotes modernization actions and the introduction of new and emerging technologies and, in general, any initiatives that will contribute to the industrial progress of the sector.
The work carried out by the Institute is closely linked to the sector’s industries, either through the advanced technical services offered by the Institute (consultancy, market, certification, quality control, training, etc.), the confidential research projects developed at the request of different companies or the projects financed by public funding, in which case the results benefit the sector as a whole.
