International collaboration is in CARTIF's very essence. The number of projects in which it participates, as partner or coordinator, and the scope of the applied and demonstrated technology and of the research carried out, places CARTIF among the top Spanish centres present in the European market. Over the last 20 years, the centre has worked on more than 100 international projects, (coordinating 23 of them),  72 under the different European Framework Programmes, and 28 developed in Latin America.

Participation in research networks, technology platforms and associations, projects and alliances with world-class entities, among others, are our core activities, not only at European level, but globally.

CARTIF currently belongs to twenty or so organisations related to its research lines: construction, infrastructure, energy, environment, industry, food, health and ICTs.

CARTIF coordinates the Socioeconomic Strategies line in the framework of the Working Group Heritage Regeneration (European Construction Technology Platform); and it belongs to the WssTP (Water supply and sanitation Technology Platform).
Furthermore, the Centre participates in EERA (European Energy Research Alliance), on both the Joint Programme on economic, environmental and social impacts (JP e3s) and the Joint Programme on Smart Cities. It is also a member of Food for Life-Spain, of public-private partnerships such as Sustainable Process Industry through Resource and Energy Efficiency (PPP SPIRE), Robotics (PPP-Robotics) and Factories of the Future (PPP-FoF). The Centre also takes part in European Innovation Partnerships (EIPs), in particular the EIPs on Agriculture, Smart Cities, Water, and Raw Materials.
