In the year 1996 the University of Alicante (UA) subscribed an agreement with the CSIC in order to acknowledge the groups of Theory of Condensed Matter (Department of Applied Physics) and Quantum Chemistry (Department of Physical Chemistry) of the UA as constituents of an Associated Unit with the CSIC through the Institute of Materials Science of Madrid (ICMM). The agreement came to recognize a collaboration that had been taking place for at least ten years between the aforementioned groups and different components of the Theory of Condensed Matter group of the ICMM.
The agreement was renewed in 1999 and 2002. The aforementioned Associated Unit has increased the number of researchers in the last years, being now formed by the following professionals (note that all of them are part of groups of the IUMA):
