AIDIMME / Who we are



AIDIMME is a non-profit entity with private legal personality. The origins of AIDIMME date back to the 1980s when, at the initiative of the Business Sectors and the Public Administration, the first Research and Development Associations were created, constituted to support companies from the most representative industrial sectors in their entry into the European Union.

AIDIMME is a Technological Institute that, in addition, is registered as an Innovative Business Association (AEI), being an independent association, whose purpose is to contribute to increasing the competitiveness of companies, fundamentally in the field of product design and development, innovative materials, advanced and sustainable supply, manufacturing, logistics, distribution and service processes, as indicated in its Statutes.

The Association's ability to adapt over the last forty years has been essential for maintaining its objective of increasing the competitiveness of companies. With them, AIDIMME has been modifying its business model, from a more vertical model oriented to specific sectors to a more open model like the current economy, where the target sectors are expanded and redefined, these being: Furniture, Habitat and Building; Metalworking and Capital Goods; Automotive and Transportation; Wood, Metals and other Materials; Consumer Goods etc. sectors that are included in the scope of the regional strategic plans RIS3 (Intelligent Specialization Strategy in Research and Innovation).

The vision of the Technological Institute AIDIMME is to be a worldwide reference in R&D&I activities, value-added services and certification, attracting companies and organizations from other countries to collaborate on projects and, thus, promote the positioning of Valencian companies and the rest of Spain in international markets.

On the other hand, AIDIMME has a unique technological infrastructure, with constantly evolving equipment, although its main asset is the people who collaborate or are part of its staff. For this reason, it is sought as a strategy to satisfy the personal and professional needs of HR, and that this allows it to be a reference model in its management and action for the Network of Technological Institutes of the Valencian Community (REDIT).

AIDIMME has in its "curriculum" recognitions, accreditations and national and international collaborations that allow it to meet its statutory objectives, and maintains its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy in constant development.

AIDIMME thanks its associated companies, sectoral federations and public bodies, all of them belonging to its Governing Bodies, for their collaboration, without which the development of the Institute's activity would not be possible.
