The Institute of Physical and Information Technologies "Leonardo Torres Quevedo" (ITEFI) is an institute of the Higher Council of Scientific Research (CSIC) has as main objective the research in the new physical technologies applicable to the industrial, biomedical and environmental areas , As well as to the information technologies related to the security of the communications and the cryptography. The name of the Institute aims to reflect, in a generic way, both the lines of research that the staffs that belongs to the Institute carries out at present, and the future lines to which they could be welcomed, fruit of the evolution of the current and Of the technologies involved. The staff that constitutes this institute, created on June 26, 2013 by the CSIC State Agency (Resolution of June 26, 2013 of the Governing Council), comes from CSIC centers and institutes, now disappeared, and therefore heirs The lines of research that in the past defined and characterized the Institute of Applied Physics (IFA), the Institute of Acoustics (IA), the Institute of Industrial Automation (IAI), the Institute of Information Security (ISI) Of Physical Technologies "Leonardo Torres Quevedo". The name of "Leonardo Torres Quevedo", which defines the institute, refers not only to the building that is the headquarters of ITEFI, but also wants to serve as an unequivocal symbol of its desire to be pioneers in physical, mathematical and information. The institute has three departments which are subdivided into different groups of study. 1) Department of Acoustics and Non Destructive Evaluation (DAEND) 2) Sensors and Ultrasonic Systems Department (DSSU) 3) Information Processing and Cryptography Department (DTIC) Instituto de Seguridad de la Información (Instituto de Física Aplicada) is at 7303 in terms of size and stands at the rank of 7604 in the world and holds the place at 499 in Spain. There is currently 120 staff approx. working as an employee in the institute. Currently the university has various on-going projects on which research is going on in various fields. Some of the current research projects are listed: Development of self-sensitized materials based on micro / nanomaterials for the surveillance of civil and transport infrastructures which are started on 1 January 2016. Previously university carried research on the project listed: CYBERSECURITY: data, information and risks (CIBERDINE) which started on 01 November 2014. It also carried research Towards the next generation of standards for service life of cement-based materials and structures. Action TU1404 which started on 29 May and will end 13 May 2018. The university also holds various publications from different scholars.
