AIMEN Technology Centre was set up in 1967 as an initiative of the industry as a non-profit private association. The Centre is focused on developing and strengthening the competitive capacities of companies through the promotion and execution of R&D&i activities, as well as providing technological services of high added value.

The goal of the AIMEN is to be a technological and strategic partner, thus contributing to improving their technological capabilities and increasing their competitiveness.

AIMEN expertise in advanced manufacturing has enabled a cross-sectorial collaboration activity with several industrial areas that go from aeronautics to chemical and petrochemical, automotive, shipbuilding, construction, energy, metal mechanical, etc. To a wide range of industrial sectors, AIMEN provides technological services and engages in R&D&i activities in different areas such as High-Performance Materials, Smart Manufacturing, Laser-Based Manufacturing, Laser-assisted manufacturing, Micro and High Precision Manufacturing, and Environmental Technologies.

AIMEN is involved in many regional, national, and international networks; the most relevant are listed herein:

- Associations promoting the contractual Private-Public Partnerships: EFFRA, EuRobotics, Photonics21, Vessels for the Future.

- European Technology Platforms: MANUFACTURE (sub-platforms for Joining and Additive manufacturing), EuMAT, Photonics21, and WssTP.

- Other networks: EARTO (European Association of Research and Technology Organisations), SECPhO (Southern European Cluster in Photonics & Optics), European Laser Institute, European Federation for Welding, Joining, and Cutting, EUCOG (European Network for the Advancement of Artificial Cognitive Systems, Interaction, and Robotics), EPIC (European Photonics Industry Consortium).

AIMEN holds the Technical Secretariat of the Spanish Photonics Platform Fotónica21 and the national mirror group of the European Photonics Technology Platform, Photonics21.
