The CEICS is made up of eight renowned public research bodies:
As well as four technology centres dedicated to research, which put their knowledge to work by transfering their results for use in companies:
These institutes make up a network of research centres of excellence that bring together leading experts in each of the CEICS's five areas of specialization.
These research structures are complemented by the Mestral Technology Centre, which explores techniques related to the management of radioactive waste.
The URV has created its own research centres involving some one hundred active research groups in the fields of chemistry, nutrition and health, culture and heritage, tourism and oenology.
The quantity of research undertaken at the university and the research institutes and centres forming the CEICS has led scientific productivity in the counties of southern Catalonia to rank among the most established in Spain, with more than 900 articles published in recognized international scientific journals every year.
The CEICS has a Scientific and Technical Resource Service, a technical support service aiding research, development and knowledge transfer activities in all of the scientific and technological areas of the CEICS. The service allows researchers to use technical equipment and draw on human resources and offers specialized training so that professionals can do their work with the advantages of the very latest technical knowledge.
Recently, the Centre of Omics Science has started. The COS is a scientific operator in the world of omic technologies fully equipped with cutting-edge metabolomics, proteomics, transcriptomic, and genomic tools. The COS science facilities provide useful supportive services for companies and academia. This scientific platform has been funded through the INNOCAMPUS program.
