Foundation: 2006

Mission: Our mission is the creation of value through cutting-edge research for the development of protocols, algorithms and systems that make the digital knowledge society possible. We carry out this mission through research and development of innovative and useful scientific and technical advances in these areas, while actively promoting their transfer to the market. The Institute strives to provide optimal working conditions and an attractive, well-equipped environment for researchers to focus on this process of innovative problem solving and scientific advancement.

Vision: IMDEA Networks focuses on an area that has a profound impact on people's lives. In recent decades, the Internet, smart phones, Wi-Fi and social networking have transformed society and the economy. In fact, widespread access to networks has dramatically changed how manufacturers produce and supply products, how public administrations operate, how professionals work and, in general, how society and its individuals evolve. The Internet as a socio-economic phenomenon continues to transform our lives at an incredible pace, and will continue to do so in the future with the deployment of new technologies and communication paradigms.
