The Madeira Regional Government declared the Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute (M-ITI) a public service institution that "provides and develops activities of public interest through research and development in the field of human-computer interaction in Madeira" and "organizes and carries out its activities, without profit, for the benefit of the entire region” as of February 12th 2015.
