IKUR is a scientific strategy recently launched by the Department of Education of the Basque Government. IKUR will boost scientific research in the Basque Country in specific strategical areas.

Although its first focus is to enhance the generation of knowledge of excellence, it also looks for technological development in these fields in the medium and long term. There are 4 areas of strategic interest in IKUR:

1. Neurobiosciences

2. Quantum technologies

4. High Performance Computing & Artificial Intelligence

The planning of IKUR has been specifically defined for each strategic area, identifying the objectives, milestones and goals to achieve; the key players in its drive and the economic and budgetary bases on which it is based.The IKUR strategy will be channeled through different instruments:

1. Research and training programs of excellence.

2. The generation of state-of-the-art infrastructures and equipment.

3. The articulation of a scientific, technological and industrial community.
