The Centre for Technology Diffusion, Ceditec, is part of the Data Processing and Simulation Research Unit (GPDS) in the Technical University of Madrid.

Ceditec maintains an active Technology Watch Programme in Mobile Technologies and Applications, hold from 2004 to date, which includes the generation of a monthly newsletter with a selection of the most innovative services, patents, publications and reports on wireless technologies. Currently, this Technology Watch service has more that 600 users. Apart from that, Ceditec elaborates technology watch and forecasting reports on wireless technologies and mobile services and their application to different domains, such as healthcare, retail security and loss prevention, tourism, intelligent home, etc.
