I-Link 2020

i-LINK C.S.I.C Programme


The general objective of the i-LINK+ Programme is to stimulate the collaboration between CSIC research groups and international research groups of the highest relevance by means of its own resources. No geographical or thematic restrictions are contemplated in the call, but there must be a common and complementary research theme between the partners for the development of which they have adequate funding independently in their respective centres. All these within the scope of the Sustainable Development Goals. The central objective of this programme is:

  • To create and consolidate international consortia of excellence in order to compete in future
    calls for international R&D&I projects.
  • The activities promoted by this programme are the realization of work and specialization stays of the CSIC research groups, as well as the research groups of the participating entities in both directions. It also includes meetings, seminars and other internationalisation activities between the participating research groups within the framework of a common research project.
  • The expected impact of the Programme is to improve the internationalisation of the CSIC through the consolidation of stable links of scientific cooperation between CSIC teams and foreign scientific institutions of excellence.
