Since 2003 the Innovation Centre of the University of Oviedo (C1NN) has been working on the information and communication society technologies to be applied to the provision of services to the university community and other entities as well. Therefore, it is a R+D Centre devoted to Online Training projects, Electronic Administration, Knowledge Centers, web design and development and issues related with information security.

Throughout its extensive background, the center has gained large experience mainly concerned with e-learning platforms; web portal managers and CMS; repositories and document managers; development of personalized applications. In the last few years, in line with its collaboration with companies and public entities, the center has focused its know-how on consultancy and training services, and also on collaborative projects in some of the fields and technologies where the C1NNhas proven experience: Moodle, OCW, Liferay, Alfresco and Activity.

Some of its main activities in recent years are detailed below:
