With the president's visit, an agreement between the CSIC and the Barcelona City Council has also been closed. This is a collaboration protocol to promote a project to expand research spaces and, specifically, the facilities of the Mediterranean Center for Marine and Environmental Research (CMIMA), located on the Barcelona seafront, and which includes the Institute of Marine Sciences and the Marine Technology Unit.

The CSIC is the largest public institution in Spain dedicated to scientific and technical research and one of the most prominent in the European Research Area. In Catalonia, the CSIC has 14 centres of its own and 3 joint centres, shared with other institutions. Likewise, the CSIC participates in 4 centres.
