Currently, Titania participates in collaborative innovation projects at both national and European level, within the scope of its lines of research.

Lines of research

Proyectos de I+D en tratamientos superficiales

Environmentally friendly surface treatments

Titania is researching new surface treatments that restore the corrosion protection effectiveness of methods using chromium (VI).

Desarrollo en fabricación de paneles

Composite manufacturing

We offer the validation of new manufacturing processes; manufacturability studies with thermoset, thermoplastic and hybrid materials and sensorisation of composite structures. Finally, we are launching a line of research into the recycling of these materials, one of the biggest challenges they face in terms of sustainability.

Tecnologías industria 4.0

Industry 4.0 technologies

Industry 4.0 tools are used at Titania to optimise industrial processes. Through simulation, data analysis, robotic applications and additive manufacturing, work is being done to improve industrial competitiveness.

Investigación, innovación y desarrollo en energía renovables

Renewable energies

Titania is committed to hydrogen as an energy vector for the storage and distribution of surplus renewable energies. For this reason, we are researching the optimisation of its generation by electrolysis, as well as its industrial uses.


Our capabilities allow us to participate in low TRL basic research projects, oriented to the development of materials with advanced properties or to the improvement of processes. At the same time, we participate in higher TRL projects, closer to the market.

We make the existing capacities of our testing laboratories available for the development of R&D projects. This allows us to participate with the guarantee provided by the accreditations and certifications of each of these laboratories.
