CIDEC carries out studies, research works and projects in four main areas of activity which are different but complementary (access the Projects section to see CIDEC curriculum)

Management and Human Capital Development
The development of initiatives and projects aimed at reflection and the elaboration of projects for the identification and measurement of Human Capital, through projects for public institutions or as projects of our own within the framework of the Center for Initiatives.
    Methodologies and indicators to measure human and intellectual capital (Initiative "Investors in Human Capital" IHC);
    Territorial observation and measurement
    Transfer of knowledge in organizations and in society in general (publications, seminars ...), etc..
Training, Employment and Skills
Learning and the different aspects associated with it (training, skills, guidance ...) have been the backbone of CIDEC activity since it came into being. This desire to improve the skills and knowledge capacity of people, both individually and within the organizational context (firms, institutions, NGOs ....) has evolved along with the changes in the concept of training and in learning methodologies, the incorporation of elements related to non-formal learning and the development of human capital.

These interventions have been both transversal (transversal competences ...) and sectoral (particularly in areas related to Social Services, Restaurants/Hotels and Trade, Transport or Construction). Cidec also has significant expertise in training evaluation (plans, programs or training actions) and in the evaluation of new forms of learning.
Innovation and Social Development
In the area of support provided to governments and private initiatives to find answers to the social challenges of the XXIst century, CIDEC has developed a variety of projects which include two main strands of activity:
    Initiatives related to social changes and strategies aimed at achieving a more cohesive society: aging, migration, new processes of exclusion, equal opportunities (women, the disabled...)
    The need to improve institutional coordination, in general, and between social policies and employment services in particular, placing employability at the heart of social inclusion policies.
Latin America and the Caribbean
CIDEC has developed technical assistance initiatives and programmes in Latin America and Caribbean countries, and has been behind work and cooperation missions with various institutions, links which are strengthened with the incorporation of CINTERFOR-OIT as a member in 1993.

These studies and research works have been funded by agencies and entities such as the European Social Fund, the Organization of Iberoamerican States for Education, Science and Culture (OEI), the World Bank or the Inter-American Development Bank, IDB, among others.
