The JAE Chairs program aims to stimulate collaboration and identification of emerging, disruptive and promising lines of research that can add value to the CSIC.

The JAE Chairs program, managed and funded by the FGCSIC, is aimed at awarding a JAE Chair that promotes the close collaboration of a researcher of recognized international prestige (Chairholder) with one of the national research institutes or centers of CSIC (CSIC receiving Institute).

The Chairholder will spend at least two months per year at the receiving CSIC Institute and, together with a CSIC researcher from that Institute (the Coordinator), will co-lead the JAE Chair project.
