Evolution: in numbers
The growth of a research center can be traced to a series of events, decisions and circumstances that influence each other over the years. While annual Activity Reports take a snapshot of the situation at a given time, this page examines how the trends have changed since our founding.
Who we were and how we worked in the early 1990s and who we are today
Links between data on personnel and the institutional organization over time
This chart connects numbers regarding staff, branches of our research center and facilities; by clicking on the letters one can discover the events that marked the changes. The time series is accurate for fixed-term, permanent and apprenticeship contracts. Other types of contracts such as CoCoCoo are not included. This is the reason why a higher total of collaborators is reported in the final annual graphs.
The European Commission funds research projects on the basis of programs that run over seven years (e.g., Horizon 2020, Horizon Europe, EFRE). This graph shows the projects approved year by year and, in each programming period, the total number of projects carried out and their related EU contribution.

The development of peer reviewed articles and citations
Since 1992, we have published 2,200 articles in scientific journals and have received nearly 70 thousand citations.
