The Real Colegio Complutense at Harvard University (Cambridge, Massachusetts):[1] The RCC was founded as a joint cooperative institution to foster intellectual and scientific interaction between Harvard University and Complutense, with the support of HM King Juan Carlos I, HM Queen Sofia of Spain and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. It follows the tradition of the Royal Spanish College, founded in 1364 to host Spanish Visiting Scholars at the University of Bologna. The RCC accord is the only one of its sort ever to have been approved by Harvard. The institution is directed jointly by the President of Harvard and the Rector of Complutense University, with an academic council and an advisory council. Recently, the RCC has incorporated three new Partner Universities, which are the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Universidad Rey Juan Carlos and Universidad de Alcalá de Henares. RCC permits a select number of scholars to conduct their research at Harvard as Visiting Scholars. It also permits a small number of students to attend the different Graduate Schools at Harvard. RCC Fellows enjoy the same privileges as Harvard's non-tenured Faculty. Each year the institution hosts different lectures and events for an audience of Harvard professors and students. Furthermore, Real Colegio Complutense at Harvard University signed an agreement with ISDI for the development and teaching of digital academic content and joint digital training activities in Spain and at Harvard.
