The International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE) was created in April 1987. CIMNE’s mission is the development and dissemination of original research in the field of Numerical Methods in Engineering (NME), the education of researchers and the transfer of the research outputs to industry.

In December 2019 became one of the six “Centre for Excellence Severo Ochoa” accredited by the Spanish State Research Agency (attached to the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities).

CIMNE is a leader as an international centre of excellence in the field of NME through four main action vectors:

Excellence in research on NME for multidisciplinary engineering applications, in terms of scientific outputs and software-based tools.
International dimension.
Active participation and management in scientific societies.
Commitment to technology transfer to industry.
