The Computer Vision Centre is recognized as Unit of Scientific Culture and Innovation (UCC+i) by the FECYT


The Computer Vision Centre (CVC) Communication and Marketing Department has been accredited, for first time, as a Unit of Scientific Culture and Innovation (UCC+i) by the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT, for its initials in Spanish), and will form part of the Spanish UCC+i Network. The Units of Scientific Culture and Innovation (UCC+i) act as intermediaries between their host institutions and citizens, with the main aim of promoting scientific, technological and innovation culture through a range of activities.

The accreditation lasts for two years and its renewal needs to be approved by the FECYT after an evaluation of the activities and actions launched in the last year. Now the CVC has just got this accreditation, which recognises our Communication and Marketing department as one of the main agents for the dissemination and sharing of science and innovation in Spain, as well as a key service for improving and increasing the scientific training, culture and knowledge of citizens.

Also, by participating in the UCC+i Network, we can exchange experiences and explore collaborations with other institutes and organisations, thus improving the quality of our activities.
