  • Science with and for society. The goal is to increase the public interest and participation in science specially among youngsters. FECYT finances dissemination activities through an anual  public call for proposals and also launches its own activities. 
  • Scientific information and open science. The goal is to support the Ministry of Science, Innovación and Universities  in the promotion of Open Science through dissemination and training within the Spanish Research System. FECYT also works with digital public infraestructures to support open Access. 
  • Internationalization of Spanish Science. The goal is to support the Ministry of Science, Innovación and Universities in the internationalization of the Spanish research System. FECYT promotes, through the European Office, the participation of Spanish research institutions in european and international projects. FECYT also participates in  several european projects including projects of Citizen science, open Access, researchers mobility, gender and science diplomacy.
