The five-year agreement between the EUI and CSIC will facilitate collaboration in the fields of social sciences and humanities, namely political and social sciences, economics, history and civilisation, and law.

Together, the institutions aim to implement a series of joint activities, mainly aimed at coordinating, developing, and disseminating scientific research and training researchers.

Joint activities will focus on the enhancement of interdisciplinary research, through the organisation of workshops, conferences, and collaborative research projects, as well as on the development of collaborative executive education trainings and summer schools.

The two institutions will also foster the promotion of sabbaticals, visiting professorships, fellowships, and staff visits, as well as exchange programmes for researchers at the doctoral and post-doctoral levels. The agreement also entails the exchange of publications, scientific and teaching material, scientific journals, as well as documentation on joint research.

Lastly, EUI and CSIC will benefit from a mutual exchange of experiences on the strategic orientation of both organisations and their functioning and management, in order to enhance the impact of their research outputs on policymaking and global affairs.
