Mission: The main mission of CAPES is to carry out applied research on environmental issues relevant to the sustainable development of Chile, in the international context of the OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) standards and international free trade agreements. The main strengths of CAPES are: (a) cutting-edge environmental research, (b) efficient training of advanced human capital, (c) transfer activities/capacities (knowledge and technology), (d) good alliances with the private sector, and (e) outreach and fundraising both nationally and internationally. CAPES scientists belong to two Chilean universities (UC and UAI) and to private or public corporations. The main lines of research are: (1) remediation of heavy metals in the environment, (2) environmental microbiology, (3) physiology of conservation and adaptation to climate change, (4) population dynamics and exploitation of resources, and (5) management and management of natural resources in socio-ecological systems.

Evolution of the institution

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.

Compared to its context

The result of the evaluation of the institution can be compared to obtain a view of the country, the region to which it belongs and the institutions of the world, placing it in their respective positions.

Ranks by Subject areas/categories

We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal.
