They are centres dedicated to research related to science, technology and technology, the human and social sciences, as well as artistic creation, which encompasses all areas of knowledge that may exist in the University. They may also provide technical advice in the field of their competence.
The University Research Institutes must have a transdiciplinary character, an integrating function of different areas of knowledge and a high level of specialization. For this reason, it is essential that Research Institutes be set up with the aim of bringing together researchers and research groups involved in related and/or complementary research that can generate coherent research structures, facilitating collaboration between researchers, enabling access to scientific infrastructures and attracting researchers from other universities, research centres and/or countries as far as possible, while also encouraging cooperation with other public and private R&D&I centres.
This grouping of researchers or some research groups, in order to join efforts and facilitate cooperation between them, in a Research Institute must be carried out with research quality criteria and is justified in our University thanks to the existence of consolidated research groups, which brought together under a common organization would facilitate the improvement of the quality and quantity of research results.
The following institutes are currently approved:
IACYS, ICCAEx, I-PAT, IPROCAR, INDEHESA, IMBIO G+C, LINGLAP, IMUEX, INURA, INTERRA, INTIA, IBPM
