Heritage, landscape, graphic documentation and agroforestry construction

You can help PADOC fullfill its mission in two ways:

Through agreements 

PADOC provides services through agreements, in which we advise, perform research and  work on processes such as:

For which we receive payment. These services are based on Article 83 of the Spanish Law, and Articles 105 and related articles of the Statutes of the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM).

Through University-Industry Chair Collaborations 

Industry (Company) Chairs are a way of establishing extensive and qualified collaboration with corporations, foundations and other entities with UPM to develop teaching, technology & knowledge transfer, as well as research.

For the company or collaborating institution, university-industry chairs offer direct access to human resources and infrastructure of the university and can support different activities (grant programs for theses development, exploratory or technological surveillance works projects, or promotion and dissemination events). For UPM, chairs represent an opportunity to have, with some continuity, lines of funding for research, training tools for students and researchers or staff exchanges, and the commercial exploitation of their research results.
