CSIC Associated Unit
In 1996 the University of Alicante (UA) signed an agreement with the CSIC to recognize the groups of Condensed Matter Theory (Department of Applied Physics) and Quantum Chemistry (Department of Physical Chemistry) of the UA as constituents of an Associated Unit with the CSIC through its Institute of Materials Science of Madrid (ICMM). The agreement was to formalize a collaboration that dated back at least ten years between the aforementioned groups and different components of the ICMM Condensed Matter Theory group.
The agreement is renewed every three years, the last renewal being on June 10, 2019.
The research staff of the University of Alicante that is part of the aforementioned Associated Unit is (note that almost all are part of the IUMA groups):
