The CMAT is the highest example of innovation in healthcare training, a healthcare simulation centre where Iavante combines the most advanced simulation methodologies and tests new technologies applied to training and health. This makes it unique in Europe.

The mission of this Foundation is to support the creation of networks between scientific, educational, cultural and social institutions in order to promote greater dissemination of science and knowledge. The Descubre Foundation is a continuation of the science and knowledge dissemination project that began with the creation of the Andalusian Network of Spaces for Scientific and Technical Dissemination, on 12 December 2007.
