Research is considered one of the basic pillars of any university. It requires a strong willingness to collaborate and adequate human and financial resources. In the current socio-economic context, we need to promote both the participation of UCM research teams in international conferences and gatherings and "The Complutense Research Environment", which aims to foster the collaboration between UCM research teams and those of other universities or research centres. The ultimate goal of these efforts is to promote patent development and the transfer of knowledge.
