Who are we?

Instituto de Ingeniería del Conocimiento (IIC) is a private R&D+i institution dedicated to extracting knowledge on the basis of high volumes of heterogeneous data (Big Data) and optimizing business processes in areas such as banking, healthcare, social media, energy and talent management in HR.

We finance ourselves by selling our own products and services resulting from our own research. We have thus proven that research and commercialisation are compatible and profitable, and reinvest our benefits in more innovation and research. Besides, we support development of intellectual property as a way to increase productivity and competition in the global markets.

IIC team is integrated by highly qualified professionals who give a good service to our clients: psychologists, psychometricians, linguists, mathematicians, physicians, information technicians and engineers expert in their areas and specialized in creating Data Analysis models and technologies.

Nowadays, the IIC director is Alberto Barrientos, who counts on a long professional career and a rich experience in Consultancy and Sales on the Industry, Telecommunications and Utilities sectors, as well as in the Public Sector. ADIC partners are IBM España, Grupo Santander and Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM).
