• The year 2017 has also been marked by the constitution of the first spin-off company of the ICIQ, Orchestra Scientifics SL, driven by the research group of Prof. José Ramón Galán Mascaros, which will be devoted to the development and commercialization of incubated technologies at ICIQ for the sectors of scientific instrumentation and clean technologies. In particular, it should be noted that this business initiative will receive the support of the EIT KIC InnoEnergy to promote the commercialization of membranes of separation of CO2 from industrial effluents and refining of biogas.
