The Centre de Recerca Matemàtica (CRM) (Catalan pronunciation: [ˈsentɾə ðə rəˈsɛrkə mətəˈmatikə]) is a consortium, with its own legal status, integrated by the Institut d'Estudis Catalans (IEC)[1] and the Catalan Government.[2] It is a research institute associated with the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. The CRM is in essence a horizontal infrastructure that gives support to mathematical research groups and encourages the pursuit of emerging lines of research.

The current director of the CRM is Joaquim Bruna. The CRM is a member of ERCOM (European Research Centres in Mathematics). Through its postdoctoral programme, the institute is also part of EPDI (European Postdoctoral Institute).

The CRM has the following goals:

  • To carry out research programmes on high-level topics.
  • To attract the best post-doctoral fellows by way of competitive programmes of various administrations and agencies.
  • To consolidate mechanisms for an efficient service to mathematicians.
  • To take further steps towards becoming as competitive as the best European research centres and those of other scientifically developed countries of similar characteristics.
