MSc. Marta Francis, director of CITMATEL´s Organizational Development, said the company is aimed at creating and providing services and useful products to institutions and individuals, while generating financial resources for Cuba´s breakthroughs.
Thanks to its results, CITMATEL has held the status of high-tech company for a few weeks. Other three centers have reached this status: the Molecular Immunology, the Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, and the National BioPreparations.
According to Francis, CITMATEL is characterized by working in a full cycle, requiring continuing improvement. In other words, its work includes applied research and innovation, design of products and services, development and production, including business models and commercialization.
All this, she pointed out, is endorsed by an integrated management system for quality and environment, as well as occupational health and safety which is periodically certified.
CITMATEL was established in 2000, with the integration of leading groups within the Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment, as part of a business concept whose mission was to obtain results of great impact on society and economy.
Currently, Francis added, CITMATEL promotes 16 lines of innovation projects, some of which are closely linked to improving and expanding e-commerce, distance education and software proposals for administration and science.
