BRTA and MathWorks provide access to the MATLAB and Simulink product families


To all center ttechnology of BRTA, with the aim of supporting the cscience, la ttechnology and the iInnovation in the Basque Country.

The Basque Research and Technology Coalition (BRTA) and MathWorks, a leading distributor of computational software, have signed an agreement focused on accelerating innovation and digital transformation in each and every industry in the Basque Country. The pact gives engineers and also scholars from twelve BRTA Technology Centers access to the complete portfolio of MATLAB and Simulink products in support of their strategic R&D ideas in areas that include cyber-physical systems, artificial intelligence, digitalization, robotics, devices medical, IoT and 5G.

“For BRTA, it has been a very satisfactory agreement, it will allow technology centers to access some work tools that will make major developments possible through modeling and simulation, to produce new knowledge and, what is more, relevant, transfer it to our business fabric and our society. MathWorks tools will make it possible to address solutions for complex systems in very different fields, such as digital twins, applied AI, artificial vision, cybersecurity, process modeling", highlights Rikardo Bueno, CEO of BRTA.

Engineers as well as BRTA scholars will have access to over a hundred products from the MATLAB and Simulink families, as well as a suite of modules and online training activities to support their user community, all provided by MathWorks, for their employment in the development of embedded systems and artificial intelligence algorithms.

  • The projects of the BRTA technology centers that will benefit from the pact will include:
  • Next generation of renewable energy systems, solar, wind and batteries
  • eMobility: sustainable cars and transport systems
  • Digital twins and predictive maintenance for industrial processes and equipment
  • Robotics and autonomous systems
  • Artificial intelligence for big data analytics deployed in the cloud and on embedded devices
  • New communication systems based on 5G
  • Development of artificial intelligence applications for the field of health

To facilitate knowledge and use of MATLAB and Simulink, the BRTA Technology Centers and MathWorks are cooperating on a technology adoption roadmap that will speed up implementation and facilitate communication and exchange among BRTA members.
