IBEI officially becomes a CERCA centre

The Institut Barcelona d'Estudis Internacionals (IBEI) has been recognised as a Research Centre of Catalonia (Centre de Recerca de Catalunya (CERCA)) by the Catalan government's Department of Research and Universities. The decision, officially published in the Diari Oficial de la Generalitat de Catalunya (DOGC), consolidates IBEI as a leading player in the field of research in Catalonia.

The path to this prestigious recognition began in 2021, when IBEI successfully passed a rigorous evaluation process. This positive evaluation highlights IBEI's continued commitment to excellence in research and its contribution to scientific and social progress.

CERCA, as a public sector entity of the Generalitat de Catalunya, has as its main mission to support and facilitate the activity of research centres, as well as to foster synergies and strategic cooperation, and to improve the positioning, visibility and impact of research at national and international level. CERCA's objectives focus on several key areas, including the enhancement of scientific cooperation on a global scale, the promotion of knowledge transfer in the business sector and in society, and the visualisation of research results to attract the commitment of society.

This recognition as a CERCA Centre represents a significant opportunity for IBEI. In addition to improving the visibility and impact of its research, IBEI will be able to establish new collaborations and consolidate its standards of excellence. In its current work, CERCA is made up of 42 research centres, and IBEI joins this prestigious network with the aim of making an outstanding contribution to the development of research and innovation.
