How the CIS works

How the CIS works

The CIS undertakes its task of analysing and developing scientific knowledge on Spanish society by taking surveys and doing qualitative research studies. These studies are performed either at the initiative of the entity itself, or through agreements with public or not-for-profit private institutions.

Through agreements, the CIS also fosters the organisation of courses and seminars (or participation in such activities) aimed at training, the analysis or dissemination of research results, within fields associated with sociology and political science.

The Centre has its own training schemes and research promotion programmes, together with a publications department which plays an essential role in research dissemination in the social sciences in Spain.
