In its trajectory the NUTES signed technical cooperation agreements with the following bodies: Fraunhofer – IESE (Institute of Experimentelles Software Engineering) of Germany; FUNDACION TECNALIA RESEARCH & INNOVATION (TECNALIA) – Spain; National Institute of Technology (INT); Technology Center of Information Renato Archer (CTI); National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa); Trauma Hospital of Campina Grande and Hospital Foundation (FAP).

Within the competencies were developed partnerships with various companies and development institutes in Brazil and worldwide.

Accreditation to the Committee of the Information Technology Area – CATI the Ministry of Science, Technology and Information (MCTI) enables to perform NUTES partner with companies who are or who want to benefit from tax incentives of the Information Technology Act. The projects include the areas of education, research, development and innovation in technology.

According to Information Act to benefit from tax incentives the business development or production of IT goods and services and automation must invest annually in research and development in information technology to be held in the country, at least 2.3% of gross income must be applied through agreements with research centers or institutes, or Brazilian educational entities, official or recognized, accredited by the committee.

Accreditation, held in early June 2014 was another important achievement for NUTES, which is consolidated as a reference center for research that can meet the existing demand in the computer areas and technologies related to health.

In another line, NUTES can establish multiple partnerships with health sector companies for innovation in the following activities:

  • Analysis of the quality of the products developed. In its Biomedical Laboratories and Microelectronic, the NUTES has a wide range (over a hundred) of specialized equipment such around automated, 3D printers, gas analyzers, lung analyzers, thermal cameras and artificial hearts, and equipment in the process of acquisition as such as Anechoic camera and CT scanner Computerized. Such equipment can measure the quality of the products and indicate points of improvement in them.
  • Product development. From the analysis of products, NUTES has established ability to develop, together with partner companies, more efficient equipment and with less risk to patients and operators (not to mention the reduction of the production cost).
  • Telemedicna. The NUTES already has proven experience in developing systems to support the programs in regions where access to information is poor. Along these lines, companies that have the need to fit in programs such as More Doctors, who initially led doctors to the poor places and should soon act to bring equipment to these places, can count on the experience of NUTES this area .
  • Interoperability between medical devices. There is a growing need devices to share information. According to Carel IJsselmuiden, executive director of COHRED, “the potential of eHealth to improve health systems is based on two points: access to information and management of those who exchange information. Most of the work done in the area focused on the development of technologies focused on the patient, such as telemedicine and, although it is clear that it is a necessary practice, I believe that both the information handled as the use of this information are limited. ” In this context the NUTES actively works in this line, working in product development in accordance with the interoperability standard HL7 and IEEE 11073.
