ITC-UJI offers specialised services to the ceramic industry such as, technology transfer, development of R&D projects, technical assistance to solve specific problems of ceramic companies and more than 450 types of standards tests related to ceramic materials or processing. The development of these activities has allowed contributing decisively to the main technological milestones that have occurred in recent years in the Spanish ceramic industry.
