Visual Tagging Services, the spin-off of the CVC and UAB created in 2012 and centred on visual-based branding monitoring in social networks, has been awarded with an SME Instrument Phase 1 via the project MINDPICS. The SME instrument is a funding scheme for innovative European Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs). The funding of 50.000€ (Phase 1) aims to boost those European SMEs with disruptive business innovations that have potential for high growth and internationalisation.

Visual Tagging Services is the result of the knowledge transfer activities carried out at the Image Social Evaluation Laboratory (ISE Lab) , the SGR research group of the CVC centred on social media analysis and recently granted by the Ministerio de Educación, Cultura y Deporte via the PERIPHAS project (2016-2019).
