Universidad Carlos III de Madrid

Carlos III University de Madrid is one of Spain’s most prestigious technical Universities. Due to its public, non-profit nature, the exploitation and dissemination strategies of UC3M largely coincide on its main objective, which is to use research results to advance and progress scientific knowledge. Research at Carlos III University of Madrid (UC3M) has always been one of the basic pillars of the University’s activities, both to improve teaching and to generate new knowledge and new lines of research. Within UC3M, the Electronics Technology Dpt. has 5 Research Groups. Among them, the University Group for Identification Technologies (GUTI – http://www.guti.uc3m.es) has a great experience in Biometrics, Smart Cards and Security in Identification Systems. GUTI holds the Secretariat in the Spanish Mirror Subcommittee in Biometrics (AEN/CTN71/SC37) and the Chair in the Spanish Mirror Subcommittee in Identification Cards (AEN/CTN71/SC17). They are also experts in SC27. In addition, UC3M has opened an Evaluation Laboratory for Identification Technologies, called IDTestingLab (http://idtestinglab.uc3m.es). IDTestingLab is equipped with all relevant instruments to perform technology and scenario evaluations, and his personnel is trained to carry out operational evaluation as soon as a customer requests that kind of work.
