External funds

The activities of the IMDEA Institutes are financed with public and private funds. In addition to those coming from the Community of Madrid, the Institutes obtain incomes from regional, national and international competitive public calls, and through contracts with national and foreign companies to carry out R & D projects.

Since they were founded in 2006 the IMDEA institutes have been improving their capacity to obtain external funding, to the extent that in 2018 and 2019 they obtained an average amount of 50% over and above their total budget, according to the Leyes de Presupuestos Generales de la Comunidad de Madrid for these two years.
