Support to scientific and technological areas
The Physics and Mathematics area of excellence lends support to the rest of the strategic areas in that it complements the development of research in other areas. Scientific excellence of more than 200 UC researchers and the Physics Institute of Cantabria (mixed centre between the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) and the UC) is planned in collaboration with over 300 international universities and laboratories.
Besides, it also foresees immediate incorporation of two high-quality researchers, together with their teams, to open up new lines in research and development.
Cantabria International Campus will devote the resources it obtains in a competitive announcement in the Dept. of Science and Innovation towards the extension and renovation of Super-Computation equipment as part of the Altamira Node in Super-Computation (ICTS), creating a service which will lend support to the R+D+i capacities within the UC and the region.
The area of Physics and Mathematics in Cantabria International Campus will be dynamized thanks to the new location in Cantabria of the main office of the five Santander Bank Data-Processing Centres throughout the world.
