A journey of innovation

TrainThe Informatics Research Institute starts its activities in 1996, period in which is dedicated exclusively to post degree training. Initially, IRI was part of MicroArt, a company focused on ICT consulting services, and cooperated with the Universities and associated foundations in the area of Barcelona. Stand apart the Open University of Catalonia, the Technical University of Catalonia, the Technical Institute of Catalonia and the “Cibernarium” of “Barcelona Activa”. Based on those collaborations IRI promotes post degree courses, namely the “ICT Management” and “Business Intelligence” master degrees.

As a consequence of its permanent evolution, in 2011 IRI is reconverted as a fully independent body, focusing its main activity in ICT research, and adopting its current name.
