The Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence Accreditation is awarded by the Government of Spain to recognize, reward and promote outstanding scientific research. It is part of a plan to support strategic research programs developed in centres of excellence. The specific objectives of the Severo Ochoa sub-programme are:

  • Improve the capacity of high-level research centres to organize and carry out their investigations.
  • Improve their ability to attract, recruit, train and retain talent
  • Encourage their relationship with other reference centres
  • Disseminate research results to the general public
