In July 2021, the announcement that the CRM had been awarded the María de Maeztu Excellence Unit from the 2020 Call was released. To present the Strategic Plan for the project, a stimulating and insightful development plan, a kick-off meeting was organized for the 28th of January, month in which the María de Maeztu officially starts.

However, the covid-19 is affecting, again, all the multitudinary events so it has forced the direction of the CRM to move the event some weeks forward in time to the beginning of March, to a date still to be announced.
