  • Promote an area of ​​applied research where Humanities and Health Sciences dialogue.
  • Develop training programs in the areas of the center, both for professionals and for people interested in promoting their academic careers.
  • Promote consultancy projects and actions on demand, in the areas of our mission.
  • Position the center as a reference for thought, debate and reflection in Spain and Latin America, inspired by the conciliatory and liberal spirit of our holder, strengthening its strategic positioning and generating scientific dissemination actions in the areas that are its own.

From the academic excellence, the Institute contemplates, in its formative offer, different degrees of specialization that are adapted to the needs of academics and professionals.

The international presence of this Institute, which has headquarters and strategic alliances in several Latin American countries, also responds to the understanding that Gregorio Marañón had of the common space in Spanish. Therefore, on-line training has a very prominent presence in our programs, since it favors dialogue on both sides of the Atlantic.
