“Granada Excellence Network of Innovation Laboratories” (GENIL) is a project which was approved in the first edition of the Campus Program of International Excellence, in the R&D and Transfer subprogram, announced by the Order PRE/1996/2009 and published in the Spanish Official Gazette of 20-17-2009 (BOE). This project intends to design and develope a new academic and scientific environment for the teaching, research and innovation in Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), Mathematics and Computational Physics (GENIL Campus). As laid in the Campus Program of International Excellence, it does not only support the promotion and consolidation of the University of Granada (UGR), but also intends to contribute to make the UGR one of the top European Universities with outstanding results in the aformentioned fields, and to turn the Centres involved in the project into prestigious, international reference centres.

The University of Granada has fully supported the GENIL Campus project, promoted its activities and praised the team's efforts by sponsoring the inclusion in the program of three centres which already are references of excellence and scientific quality all over the world: the Information and Communication Technologies Research Centre (CITIC) of Granada, the headquarters in the University of Granada of the Spanish Institute of Mathematics (IEMAth) and the Carlos Institute I for Theoretical and Computational Physics

The general aim of GENIL, which emerges from the previous approach, is no other than to turn the University of Granada into a more international and visible institution, as well as to boost the science and technology development and to improve the achievements reached in these fields by implementing a new concept of University Campus.

Such an aim, involving the scientific fields of ICT, Mathematics and Computational Physics, can only be met if an appropriate methodology is implemented. For this reason, the following activities will be carried out:

  • Creation of new scientific projects in a wide geographical area.
  • Establishment of mechanisms to make technological transfer easier.
  • Divulgation and promotion of research.
  • Creation of a new generation of researchers and inclusion in the aformentioned centres of the best young scientifics available.
  • Creation of stable bonds in order to develop excellence research projects.

These activities, which will make the achievement of our aim possible, will be carried out by all centres and teams involved in the GENIL Campus project with the support of the associated institutions involved in this project. This support will be given through five nodes of activity

  1. Researchers Ongoing Longtime Stays (ROLS)
  2. Interdisciplinar Intensive Investigation of Excellence (IIIE)
  3. Bridges for the Results of the Investigation between Society and Academia (BRISA)
  4. Visibility, Information and Communication Actions (VICA), and
  5. The GENIL International Master School (GIMS)
