Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems (IFISC)
The backbone of our research that unifies, percolates, and is the basis of the rest of our activities is the study of generic phenomena in Nonlinear Physics and Complex Systems, with strong methodological components from Statistical Physics, Dynamical Systems, Computational Methods and Quantum Mechanics. From this source of concepts and ideas, the researchers face the challenge of cooperatively defining and updating specific and projects within a flexible and changing framework.
Universitat de les Illes Balears (UIB)
The UIB not only prepares good professionals but has also made research its fundamental objective. As a part of this commitment, the UIB has taken a stake as an economic agent and actively participate in the innovation market by promoting and creating "spin-off" companies.
To achieve these objectives, the UIB has excellent researchers and high quality research facilities. In addition to this solid base, it can also provide "know how" as well as scientific and technological services as well as providing a "value added" treatment to businesses and social agents.
Of course, this would not have been possible without FEDER funds, the European Commission, The Ministry of Science and Innovation (Ministeri de Ciència i Innovació), The Goverment of the Balearic Islands (Govern de les Illes Balears) and other institutions of support for the financing of research projects as well as the other research and innoations actions taken.
This continuous and collaborative effort has allowed the UIB to achieve great prestige as a research organisation: on the national level, where it ranks as one of the best in scientific production per researcher; as well as the international level, thanks to the many collaborations our researchers maintain with universities and research centres throughout Europe and the rest of the world.
Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC)
CSIC plays an important role in scientific and technological policy, since it encompasses an area that takes in everything from basic research to the transfer of knowledge to the productive sector. Its research is driven by its centres and institutes, which are spread across all the autonomous regions, and its more than 15,000 staff, of whom ore than 3,000 are staff researchers and the same number again are doctors and scientists who are still training. CSIC has 6% of all the staff dedicated to Research and Development in Spain, and they generate approximately 20% of all scientific production in the country. It also manages a range of important facilities; the most complete and extensive network of specialist libraries, and also has joint research units.
