Health Innovation Network of Catalonia (XISCAT)
XISCAT | Health Innovation Network of Catalonia is established as the first network of hospitals, socio-sanitary and medical centers in Catalonia and Spain that promotes and encourages R+D+I, the protection and transfer of the results derived, through their cooperation with the centers that are part of the group, as well as the joint work with institutions and companies working within the health sector.
This initiative, promoted by the main hospitals and medical centers located within the metropolitan ring of Barcelona and supported by the coordination of 'Parc de Salut', intends to offer the best coverage in the Catalan territory and reinforce their collaborations on the entire national and international territory avoiding the duplication of efforts.

The XISCAT network collaborates with companies and institutions that develop new ideas, carry out innovative research, work in technologies and application solutions within the medical-healthcare field.
