INESCOP (FOOTWEAR TECHNOLOGY CENTRE) 

What we do

INESCOP is a centre for technology and innovation. Established in 1971, it currently has the legal status of a non-profit, private association of companies. It has broad experience in providing technology services, transferring knowledge and carrying out research on technical topics that are of interest to the industry.
INESCOP has cross-cutting technological capabilities that can be applied to numerous sectors, although it was originally set up and specialised for the footwear sector. To this end, it has the required means to meet scientific and technical needs of companies in the following fields: quality & comfort, healthcare technologies, Industry 4.0, advanced manufacturing, collaborative robotics, 3D design and printing, circular economy, sustainable materials, adhesives, biotechnology, nanotechnology, microencapsulation and competitive intelligence.
INESCOP renders its services to over 1,000 companies every year. It also coordinates and participates in multiple regional, national and European R&D projects awarded in competitive calls.
The support provided to companies is ensured by the centre’s infrastructure and equipment, but above all by its human resources.
INESCOP is a leader in quality control, adhesives research and development of CAD systems for footwear and components, being the centre recognised as one of the most prestigious in the footwear sector worldwide.
In short, INESCOP acts as the R&D&I department of many companies whose limited resources prevent them from having such a department in house. In fact, INESCOP works hand-in-hand with companies as their technological ally, so that the transfer of research results can be as immediate as possible.
