“University Spin -Off ” are the Start-Up companies arising from the initiative of a member of the community of the university and starting at the de work of researchers nd with a with scientific-technological component developed whithin the University.
“Spin-Off” companies that arise from the universities help to transfer the knowledge and the scientific research to the business world, looking for a direct application in production processes and its business, being one of the results of policies of transfer of technology between the universities and the industry, allowing the capitalization of academic research,translating it into business value.
These initiatives also represent an interesting opportunity in creation of jobs for researchers.
Manuel Bea is a PhD in History from the University of Zaragoza and has a Master in Management of Cultural Heritage. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the “Torres Quevedo” program (MINECO). Previously, he was a PhD student and postdoctoral researcher at the University of Zaragoza. His scientific interest is focused on the study and documentation of rock art but combined with the analysis of social and economicals values of the UNESCO World Heritage Rock Art as well as in the research of new ways of spreading and awareness-rising of its values. His researchs have been published in several national and international articles and also in five books. Additionally, he has also been scientific director of numerous archaeological projects, among which are those related to the World Heritage rock art, funded by the Department of Fine Arts (Dirección General de Bellas Artes).
Jorge Angás obtained his PhD at the University of Zaragoza with the title “Geometric documentation of Cultural Heritage: analysis of techniques, assessments and new perspectives”. His research focuses on the field of geometric documentation of CH by means of surveying, photogrammetry and 3D scanning techniques. For his formation, he has joined several predoctoral experiences at the Università degli Studi di Siena (Italia). He has done numerous national and international projects applying three-dimensional documentation technics and its standardization in industry, dimensional metrology and Cultural Heritage. Besides, he has written several publications and he has participated in international forums for the Institut National du Patrimonie, the Institut Ausonius Bordeaux III, Instituto de Patrimonio Cultural de España, Universidad Internacional Menéndez Pelayo and DRAC Midi-Pyrénées about the implementation of new methods, techniques and standards of geometric documentation of the CH. Regarding the rock art, he has worked in documentation by means of three-dimensional documentation technics in more than 100 shelters and caves in Spain, Italy and France.
Both researchers of 3D Scanner Patrimonio e Industria belongs to the consolidated research group “First Settlers of Ebro river Middle-Valley (Primeros Pobladores del Valle del Ebro)” (PPVE) (H-07) of the Prehistory Area of the Department of Sciences of the Antiquity of the University of Zaragoza. Currently is the only stable research group researching all periods of prehistory in Aragón.
Researchs carried out in the context of the First Settlers of Ebro river Middle-Valley Group (PPVE) belong to the fields of study and analysis of prehistoric societies of Aragon, participating in the management of archaeological campaigns (excavations and surveys) as well as in several rock art documentation projects. It is precisely this field of R&D (research and documentation of rock art) one in which the Group PPVE provides more news to researchs at national and international level.
In his capacity as Group researchers, they develop new methods of investigation and documentation of rock art paints that appear not only as necessary elements for the scientific study of cave art but also for other fields such as conservation, restoration and dissemination.
