About us

Who are we?

Fundación General CSIC (FGCSIC) is a private non-profit organisation created in 2008 by a joint institutional initiative of the Spanish National Research Council (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas - CSIC) and its founding patrons. Its goal is to promote public-private collaboration in the environment of scientific research, innovation and knowledge enhancement.

Public-private collaboration can be developed both within the framework of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and investment projects, through different instruments that the FGCSIC has developed aimed at investing in the extensive portfolio of scientific and technological capabilities of the CSIC.

Whatdo we offer?

If it has been proven that science and innovation are key factors of competitiveness, why not grow as a company by committing to the high financial yield of investments in R&D&I and making a true social impact?

Fundación General CSIC accompanies you in this commitment with the conviction that any investment or Corporate Social Responsibility policy reaches its maximum potential when its focus is SCIENCE in capital letters.

To the one that is capable of creating a better world, to the science of excellence aimed at the market that creates innovative products, processes and services that increase the well-being of our society. We invite you to invest in the science of the SPANISH NATIONAL RESEARCH COUNCIL (CSIC), the main public research institution in Spain and third in Europe.

We enhance the knowledge that is generated at the CSIC and turn it into a useful tool for your company and for society
