An institution of excellence
María de Maeztu seal of excellence
The Spanish State Research Agency (Agencia Estatal de Investigación, AEI), dependent on the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation (MICIN), resolved the call for the Severo Ochoa and María de Maeztu Centers and Units of Excellence programme. These recognitions are aimed at funding and accrediting research centers and units, from any scientific area, which are able to prove scientific impact and leadership at an international level and actively collaborate with their social and business environment.
The Institute of Space Sciences (ICE-CSIC) obtained the María de Maeztu seal of excellence, a distinction that recognizes the centers and units that carry out highly competitive cutting-edge research and that are among the best in the world in their respective scientific areas.
The requirements, levels of demand, criteria and procedures for evaluation and selection related to scientific excellence do not establish differences between centers and units, which have been selected for their scientific results and strategic programmes after a rigorous evaluation with the participation of prestigious international scientists. The total investment of the programme is 40 million euros.
The institute will receive €2 million for funding and 8 pre-doctoral contracts.
