Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC)

Spain

The CSIC (Spanish National Research Council) is the largest and leading public research institution in Spain and the third in Europe due to the quality and quantity of its scientific production. It plays an essential role within the Spanish System for Science, Technology and Innovation and contributes to reinforce Spain’s position at the international level.

CSIC’s main aim is to develop and promote scientific studies to contribute to foster scientific and technological progress. CSIC's mission includes: 1) multidisciplinary scientific and technical research; 2) scientific and technical advice; 3) transferring results to the private sector; 4) contributing to the creation of technology-driven companies; 5) training specialised personnel; 6) management of infrastructure and large facilities; 7) promoting scientific culture. The CSIC is multidisciplinary, carrying out research in almost all fields of knowledge. Its activities encompass basic research all the way through to technological development.

The CSIC is present in all the autonomous regions through their centres across Spain. It comprises 120 centres spread across Spain, and is also present in Brussels and Rome. It is formed by employees with a wide range of academic qualifications and professional categories. The CSIC employs 11,000 people, of which 3.000 are researchers. In total, they represent the 6% of Spain’s R&D workforce and generate approximately the 20% of the country’s production. Likewise, the CSIC collaborates with other juridical entities such as consortia and trading companies.

Red dwarf punches above its weight

An enormous exoplanet orbiting a small star suggests an alternative process for planetary formation.

Very few giant planets have been spotted orbiting low-mass stars, so how they formed is poorly understood.

A team that included researchers from the Spanish National Research Council used a combined visible and infrared telescope to study a red dwarf star 31 light years away.

Their observations revealed that a gaseous planet with almost half the mass of Jupiter is orbiting the red dwarf, despite the star having only an eighth of the Sun’s mass. Models suggest that the planet formed when part of the dusty disk circling the red dwarf broke off in the early days of the stellar system when the star’s mass was too small to stabilize the ring.

The giant’s eccentric orbit suggests that another planet could be present, pulling on both the star and its sizeable companion.
