CEDENNA organizes numerous outreach activities, including conferences, talks, competitions, schools, seminars and exhibitions, to present its work to the general community, generating greater interest in science among the youth of our country.
The SCImago 2020 measurement, aimed at qualifying scientific production, innovation and the social impact of the knowledge produced by various research institutions, places Cedenna at number 15 nationwide, being the second center with universities and observatories, among others.
The SCImago ranking assesses research organizations around the world based on data from the Scopus peer-reviewed scientific literature database, and ranks them into consideration in three domains: research performance, innovation outcomes, and measured social impact for its visibility on the web.
The measurement orders 7026 institutions globally, considering these three areas, and then breaks down by area and also by zone.
In the SCImago global ranking, the Center for the Development of Nanoscience and Nano-technology ranks 703, along with organizations such as the Honda Limited Motor Company (Japan) or the Institut d’Astrophysique Spatiale (France).

In the specific selection of innovation, Cedenna ranks second in the country, preceded by the Center for Advanced Studies of Chronic Diseases. This innovation ranking measures the variables: Innovative Knowledge (IK), referring to a scientific publication of an institution cited in patents; technological impact (IT): percentage of the result of the scientific publication cited in patents (percentage is calculated considering the total production in the areas mentioned in the patents); and patents (PT) understood as the number of patent applications.
The 2020 Scimago Ranking of Institutions (SIR) is headed by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (1st place), the multinational Samsung Corp. (ranked 2), IBM of the United States (4th place), Microsoft of the United States (number 8), Harvard University (10) and the French National Center for Scientific Research (12), among others.
