UNINOVA was formed in 1986 by FCT/UNL (Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the New University of Lisbon), AIP (Portuguese Industrial Association), IEFP (Employment and Vocational Training Institute), a financial holding named IPE, and other companies and organisations.

The CA3 is one of the research groups within the Centre for Technology and Systems (CTS) at UNINOVA. The following figure depicts the UNINOVA organization structure and the CA3 research group within the organization:

Since the main owner of UNINOVA is the Universidade Nova de Lisboa, it empowers it with access to a large number of professors, specialized in many science and technological domains.

The main theme of UNINOVA as a research institute is to pursue scientific research, technical development, high level training and the creation of new Technological innovation centres and spin-off companies.
