Knowledge transfer is of vital importance for CIMNE, which invests great efforts in training and education adressed to its research staff as well as to graduates and professionals from schools of engineering and universities in applied sciences.

CIMNE regularly organises seminars, coffee talks, courses and post-graduate studies related to the theory and application of numerical methods in engineering. It has also developed a web environment for distance learning education via Internet.

The research centre plays also an important role as event organizer in the field of computational engineering. In the following pages, a summary of the conferences organized by CIMNE Congress Bureau during 2020 can be found (most of them have to be cancelled, postponed o carried out due to COVID-19 crisis). The agenda of congresses and conferences that will take place during 2021, it is also included.
