Footnote: The Spanish National Research Council (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas = CSIC) is the largest public institution dedicated to research in Spain and the third largest in Europe. Its main objective is to develop and promote research that will help bring about scientific and technological progress, and it is prepared to collaborate with Spanish and foreign entities in order to achieve this aim. The CSIC plays an important role in scientific and technological policy, since it encompasses an area that takes in everything from basic research to the transfer of knowledge to the productive sector. Its research is driven by its centres and institutes, which are spread across all the autonomous regions. Six percent of all CSIC staff is dedicated to Research and Development in Spain, and they generate approximately twenty percent of all scientific production in the country. It also manages a range of important facilities; the most complete and extensive network of specialist libraries, and also has joint research units. The CSIC was created in 1939 by the recently victorious Francoist regime from the assets of the Board for Advanced Studies (Junta para la Ampliación de Estudios = JAE, 1907-1939), born within The Free Educational Institution (Institución Libre de Enseñanza) and inspired in the Krausist philosophy. The initial mandate of the CSIC was to restore the classical and christian unity of the sciences that was destroyed in the eighteenth century. From its 1939 foundation to his 1966 death, its head was José María Albareda, one of the first members of the Opus Dei and a close friend of its founder, Josemaría Escrivá. José María Albareda was ordained a priest in 1959, and at his death was succeeded as head of CSIC by Manuel Lora-Tamayo, then the Education minister of Franco.
