R&D Institutions

Research organisations are the backbone of national science and knowledge creation. They are the place where non-business research and innovation takes place, bringing together critical capacity and fostering a working environment that stimulates scientific creativity, talent attraction, scientific careers and advanced training of human resources.
Research at these institutions covers all scientific fields, including: life and health sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities, engineering and technology, exact sciences, and natural and environmental sciences.
The "Law of Science" establishes the legal framework for institutions engaged in research and development (R&D) and defines the general principles of their evaluation and funding.
