Centro Interdisciplnar de Química y Biología (CICA)
The University of A Coruña (UDC) promotes this center to host research groups working on projects related to chemical and biological sciences.In this framework of fostering research activity, and looking for closer relationships between research and business, host groups and teams in the interdisciplinary fields of chemical, biological, environmental, and medicinal sciences are following the next basic goals:
• The development of research projects financed for public and private agencies.
• The transfer of research results within the framework of intellectual protection of the same.
• The training of research staff, the collaboration both nationally and internationally, between different research groups and centers of excellence.
• The results through publications, doctoral theses, scientific meetings and activities aimed at the community.
