Research in the CSIC is structured in three main areas, SOCIETY, LIFE AND MATERIA which cover most of the human knowledge, with more than 1,500 research groups and 120 centres devoted to them.

The scientific advances required to give a response to the challenges of the 21th century society involve a coordinated approach of researchers trained in different disciplines, capable of providing new keys to solve the main problems we are facing. Around 11.000 people committed to different tasks enable the CSIC to be globally known as a reference for scientific research.

In order to achieve this aim, our institution comprises from the fundamental aspects of basic science to the most complex technological developments in all fields of knowledge: human and social sciences, science and food technology, biology, biomedicine, physics, chemistry, materials, natural resources and agricultural sciences. Although each one of these areas has its own identity, the current complexity of scientific processes makes that frontier increasingly blurred in favor of a transdisciplinary research where the fields of knowledge do not remain apart from each other.
