The Institut de Robòtica i Informàtica Industrial was created in November 1995 as a Joint Research Institute of the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) and the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC).

The Institute was created with three main objectives: a) to promote a multidisciplinary center where CSIC and UPC researchers from different fields can combine efforts to carry out research on robotics and applied informatics; b) to offer to the community an Institute for fundamental and pre‐industrial technological research, offering also scientific education through doctorate and postgraduate courses; and c) to promote a quality‐based center being competitive enough to join other partners to participate in local, national and European research programs.
