Mission: The EEAD ultimate mission is to provide the agricultural sector with appropriate materials and technologies, to increase competitiveness and sustainability, through a deeper knowledge of basic processes of the plant-environment system. This mission leads to the production of results for the Agro-Food, Biotechnology, and Environment sectors, as we endeavour to: increase crop productivity in temperate, semi-arid zones; develop technologies for the sustainability of agricultural production, preserving the environment; and increase the quality and added value of agricultural products. This mission encompasses activities in high quality research, postgraduate education and technical training, technical consulting for public and private sectors, and dissemination of our results to the society.
Vision: The EEAD-CSIC should consolidate its role as one of the reference Agricultural Research Institutes in Spain focused on temperate, semiarid environments. It must keep its commitment to develop high quality research, increasing its international relevance, and participating more actively in European Agro-Food research platforms. To remain competitive, it must integrate at good pace high throughput cutting-edge technologies. It will have an increasing impact regarding number and quality of scientific publications, and high-level training and education; a growing influence in the creation of wealth, and will contribute to raise social awareness on the importance of scientific culture. The immediate research objectives should especially focus on areas of great social demand, such as the sustainability of agricultural systems, the management of water as a limited and strategic resource, and the quality and security of agricultural and agro-food products. The integration of efforts and objectives with those of other Institutes in the Aula Dei Campus will consolidate it as an obligatory reference within the Spanish and Mediterranean agro-food and environmental research sector.
The following data gives a quick reading on the scientific performance in the last years. The research ranking refers to the volume, impact and quality of the institution's research output. The innovation ranking is calculated on the number of patent applications of the institution and the citations that its research output receives from patents. Finally, the societal ranking is based on the number of pages of the institution's website and the number of backlinks and mentions from social networks.
