Involvement in the project

Mainly, GAIKER-IK4 is coordinating and participating in WP5 (Life cycle sustainability assessment, and product eco-design): Sustainability Assessment which consists of the following tasks: – Sustainability life cycle assessment, which includes environmental, economical and social life cycle assessments for each of the products/solutions to be developed and for each of the products/solutions that are going to be substituted. – Material circularity indicator (MCI) for each of the products/solutions to be developed and for each of the products/solutions that are going to be substituted. – Environmental Technology Verification for the developed technologies with the highest environmental performance. GAIKER-IK4 will also participate in WP8: dissemination, participating in the elaboration of newsletters, in workshops organised in the field of the project, and in general terms in whatever activity that will promote the dissemination of the project and its results.

GAIKER-IK4 is a private and non profit organisation devoted to research and offering innovative technological solutions for corporations.
GAIKER-IK4 has an approximate staff of 81 researchers, technicians and other professionals and the most cutting-edge equipment to offer the innovative and high-quality solutions for our clients’ technological needs. We have historically supported close to 2,600 businesses as clients coming from a wide variety of industrial sectors: Pharmaceuticals, Chemical Industry, Human and Animal Health, Engineering and Consultancy, Public Administration, Automotive, Construction, Containers and Packaging, Household Appliances, etc.

Since 1997 our management follows the European EFQM Model. We take special care of this issue because we understand that excellent management policy results in the optimisation of our own resources while enabling us to offer our clients better services, products and higher quality standards. Our long list of Accreditations and Certifications guarantees the quality of the work we carry out.

Since our inception in 1985, we contribute to the technological development and competitiveness of businesses through learning and specialisation and ultimately transferring technologies related to our Areas of Knowledge – Biotechnology, Environment, Recycling and Plastics & Composites – to the members of our Foundation and our clients.

In addition to our main goal (the development of R&D Projects) we also provide Advanced Technological Services (Technological Consultancy and Advisory Services and Innovation Plans, among others), Lab Testing and Technological Dissemination Services.

GAIKER-IK4 is a Technological Centre with the mission of contributing to sustainable technological development and the improvement of competitiveness in the corporate fabric of our environment through Applied Research and the generation of Innovative Technological Solutions that add value to companies within a framework of social responsibility and cooperation with other agents.

The key ideas reflected in our Mission are:

Applied Research that contributes recognisable value to the corporate fabric of our environment.
Results orientation, to generate innovative technological solutions.
Improvement of competitiveness and contribution to technological development.
Social responsibility. Sustainability.
Cooperation with other agents.
