Institutional Profile
The CRM was established by Prof. Manuel Castellet in 1984 as a centre of the Institut d’Estudis Catalans (IEC, the Catalan Academy), in the premises of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). Presently the CRM is a consortium between the Generalitat de Catalunya (the Catalan Government), represented by its Ministry of Economy and Knowledge (MEC), the IEC and the UAB.

The CRM belongs to the CERCA Agency of research centres sponsored by the Catalan Government and is a member of ERCOM (European Research Centres in Mathematics), a committee of the European Mathematical Society, together with other European centres of a similar nature. It is also a member of the EPDI (European Postdoctoral Institute) for the promotion of postdoctoral mobility and the International Mathematical Sciences Institute.

The CRM is one of the promoting institutions of the Barcelona Graduate School of Mathematics (BGSMath) and Bioinformatics Barcelona (BIB)
Since 2009, the CRM's budget is part of the public budget of the Catalan Government. Core funding is provided by MEC through yearly contracts.
Other funding is obtained through competitive calls of the European Union, the Spanish Ministries or the Generalitat.

CRM benefits as well from the sponsorship of a number of institutions (see here)

The CRM was awarded with the Narcis de Monturiol Plate Award to Scientific and Technological Merit (Picture).
