Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas Madrid

Among the top three largest public research institutions in Europe, the Spanish National Research Council promotes scientific and technological development though its multidisciplinary and internationally connected faculties and facilities.  As the largest public research institution in Spain, the CSIC has become a leader in scientific policy and technological regional development in Spain, and therefore, has become an exemplary model institution for its European and world neighbors.

In addition to cooperating with several scientific organizations and universities within Spain and abroad, CSIC also is connected to institutions, such as, CNRS, Max Planck Institute, OEI and FECYT.  Therefore, CSIC offers its researchers, and those at ENGLOBE, a broad network of research tools and perspectives.  More specifically, the Institute of Philosophy provides the Seminario Internacional de Jóvenes Investigadores (SIJI), a research centre for young students.  The Institute has also conducted numerous joint-events and research projects throughout the past decade in cooperation with its partner institutions.
