The PTIs are a finalist instrument of research and innovation, created to address multidisciplinary challenges of great scientific, economic, and social impact.

They comprise research groups from different CSIC centers and are open to the participation of companies, government, other institutions, and social agents.

Since its creation in 2018, this interdisciplinary collaboration initiative has been consolidated into several platforms and an extension has been defined in a new structure, the extended thematic interdisciplinary platforms (PTIs+), fostering a participatory process in pursuing missions that seek to reach companies and have commercialization prospects.
