Jaime Rodriguez, director of CICA and coordinator of the CICA-INIBIC Strategic Group, presented yesterday the results obtained during the year 2020. He took the opportunity to announce the end of a stage, which closes with the dissolution of the strategic group, with which he was grateful for the common benefit that this relationship has meant for both.
The day was divided into two parts:
In the first, as in other years, Jaime Rodríguez presented the main indicators of the group, highlighting, among others, those referring to publications and citations. He then made a comparative analysis of these indicators with respect to other research centers.
The results indicate an increase in the use of CICA affiliation when publishing, despite the fact that the health crisis has had an impact on scientific production. Finally, he highlighted the great effort made to attract talent in 2020, thanks to which we have obtained 12 grants through different calls (Ramón y Cajal, Beatriz Galindo, Talento de la Xunta and JIN).
In the second part of the day, Jaime expressed the commitment of the UDC for the accreditation of the CICA as a research center of the Galician University System (SUG), and took the opportunity to explain in detail the procedure we face to present ourselves in the next call of the Xunta de Galicia.
