FECYT (Spanish Science and Technology Foundation)
The Spanish Science and Technology Foundation (FECYT) is a transverse strategic operator for the Ministry of Science and Innovation (MICINN). The creation of a social environment based more on science, innovation and entrepreneurship is one of MICINN’s tasks to which the FECYT contributes the most value. In this context it makes sense to consolidate the structures created for raising awareness of science and innovation among citizens, operating in networks and supporting and promoting influential content.

In the immediate future, the activities of the FECYT will be based around six strategic lines of action:

• The State Observatory for Innovation and Knowledge.
• The reverse technology transfer program (INNOCASH).
• Support for R&D+i internationalisation.
• Communication and dissemination of science and innovation.
• The integrated acquisition of scientific information.
• Fundamental support services for MICINN.

The Institute for Informational Studies on Science and Technology (IEDCYT – Instituto de Estudios Documentales en Ciencia y Tecnología) belongs to the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC – Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas). Its main aim is to analyse, disseminate and promote scientific information in all areas of knowledge.

Since 1971 CSIC has been producing the following three bibliographic databases, compiling references of mainly articles published in Spanish journals in all fields of knowledge, following the UNESCO guidelines published by the General Information Programme.

• ICYT: database on Science and Technology
• ISOC: database on Social Sciences and Humanities
• IME: database on Health Sciences

Currently the CSIC databases include 3,642 periodical publications published in Spain, 2,178 of them in print, totalling a volume of more than one million records.

International Centre for the Research of Strategy and Information Prospective (CIEPI – Centro Internacional para la Investigación en Estrategia y Prospectiva de la Información) is a project by the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV – Universidad Politécnica de Valencia) and other institutions.

CIEPI’s objective is to study the situation, trends and evolution of information, its techniques, processes, management, as well as the roles of its professionals. It is aimed at general research, but initially it specifically addressed the preservation of digital information, and the normalisation, evaluation and visibility of science and e-science, paying special attention to its social aspects.
