We are INTER!

INTER includes more than 100 researchers from different fields and universities.

INTER has two main areas of activity, Smart Home and Mobility, each based on two axes: 1. the design and prototyping of new interactive devices and systems, and 2. the evaluation and transfer of technology.

INTER : Over 130 mandates funded to date, and further opportunities for researchers.
