Ranking of the 15 Spanish research centers by excellence ratio provided by Felix de Moya, SCImago group’s founder
ICIQ’s privileged position in the list confirms the Institute’s strong evolution towards scientific excellence since the beginning of its research activities in 2004. Since then, ICIQ has published more than 1000 scientific articles. About 90% of them have been published in the most influential chemical research journals in the world, those ranked in the first quartile (25%). The recognition of the quality of research carried out at ICIQ is also accredited by the, so far, 7 ERC (European Research Council) Grants granted to ICIQ’s principal investigators.
The SIR World Reports is the most comprehensive ranking of institutions dedicated to the analysis of research results of institutions worldwide. Every year, SCImago Research Group publishes a report that evaluates, according to different bibliometric indicators, the scientific impact and excellence of research institutions worldwide.
Besides ICIQ, other six CERCA research centres, CREAL, ICN, IFAE, ICFO, CRG y IMIM, appear between the 15 most excellent research institutions in Spain, from which 11 of them are Catalan research centres.
Next year ICIQ celebrates 10 years of excellent research and will celebrate the 10th Anniversary with the organisation of an international symposium.
