The CIBER area for European Programmes and International Relations works in close cooperation with the other areas and programmes to promote its researchers’ participation in international-scale projects and initiatives and in carrying out specific measures for displaying and promoting the international presence of CIBERSAM.
Over the last few years the CIBER has already attained a leading position in Spanish and international Psychiatry. In 2014 the main aim was the establishment and conservation of contacts with European Commission bodies, not only through putting forward proposals and cooperation in international consortiums, but also attempting to further the appearance of international calls in the priority areas of the CIBERSAM’s research. Furthermore, as a result of the international recognition attained by the CIBERSAM, an attempt has been made to increase the CIBER’s participation in extra-European programmes.
